El Máximalismo de Patentes (Patentar en Exceso) Abordado en un Nuevo Artículo del Profesor Noah Smith

Posted in America, IBM, Patents at 10:16 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Publicado en America, IBM, Patentes at 10:41 am por el Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Sumario: El patentamiento en exceso, las casi 10 millones de patents sólo en los US, muestra que la cálidad de patentes y su esfera han sido olvidadas por la industria que saca ganancias de ellas mientras que al mismo tiempo no producen nada

El jefe de patentes de IBM, quien todavía esta promoviendo las patentes de software en los Estados Unidos y en todo el mundo (especialmente en India en estos dias), se siente enojado por/acerca de este nuevo artículo que simplemente dice la verdad acerca de la estrategia de IBM “red de seguridad”, que ahora está demandando a sus rivales más pequeños usando las patentes de software — un acto verdaderamente vergonzoso. Para citar el artículo, escrito por Noah Smith (profesor asistente de finanzas en la Universidad de Stony Brook):

El secreto es la perdición de la ciencia, ya que todos los verdaderos grandes avances son en realidad una cadena de pequeños descubrimientos. Cada científico o equipo de científicos con entusiasmo lee los últimos resultados de otros laboratorios y añade algunos pequeñas pero brillantes ideas o piezas fundamentales de datos, entonces lanzán los nuevos hallazgos lo más rápido posible para que el resto de la comunidad científica engulla. Pero si las patentes billónes de dólares están en juego, las universidades – que terminan siendo dueñas de gran parte de la propiedad intelectual que sale de descubrimientos profesores – tienen un fuerte incentivo para presionar a sus estudiosos para mantener sus nuevos descubrimientos e ideas en secreto.

En otras palabras, el sistema de propiedad intelectual amenaza a un retorno de la ciencia a las eras oscuras de Newton y Leibniz.

Esto es sólo la última preocupación sobre el sistema de propiedad intelectual. Los económistas han estado advirtiendo desde hace tiempo acerca de las leyes de IP, intentando fomentar nuevos descubrimientos, pueda terminar haciendo lo opuesto. Muchos observadores de la industria creen que las patentes están deteniendo la innovación en la industria de tecnología. Hay incluso evidencia de que el amumento de IP pueda haber exacerbádo la inequalidad. Preoucupaciones de que la extensión de leyes de IP en la arena internacional constituyen el más válido criticismo de el Tratado de Sociedad Trans-Pacífica.

Smith correctamente dice que hay “incluso evidencia de que el amumento de IP pueda haber exacerbádo la inequalidad.” Consideren a la India.

Patentes de Software en la India

Sharad Sharma escribió este artículo acerca de las patentes de software en la India (inquietantemente similar a lo que se encontró en los medios la semana pasada). Titulado “Esperanza por innovación en IT, no litigación,” el artículo dice:

Una de las persistentes amenazas al ecosystema de softere en la India es el constante empuje de las MNCs para permitir las patentes de software en India.

La naciente industria de productos de software en India esta creciéndo rápidamente y esta en una trayectoria donde podemso ver marcas mundiales como Amazon, Google y Facebook emerger en los próximos 10 años.

Una de las persistentes amenazas al ecosystema de softere en la India es el constante empuje de las MNCs para permitir las patentes de software en India.

El descaro de IBM cabildendo sin verguenza por las patentes de software en India, debe ser retirado. Todo es por dominación y control (una forma de subyugación al limitar el pensamienteo) no innovación.

Las patentes tienen lugar en varias cosas, pero el software no es una de ellas. El software ya esta cubierto lo suficiente bien por los derechos de autor (o copyleft).

  1. The Letter EPO Management Does Not Want Applicants to See (or Respond to)

    A letter from the Munich Staff Committee at the EPO highlights the worrying extent of neglect of patent quality under Benoît Battistelli and António Campinos; the management of the EPO did not even bother replying to that letter (instead it was busy outsourcing the EPO to Microsoft)

  3. EPO-Bribed IAM 'Media' Has Praised Quality, Which Even EPO Staff (Examiners) Does Not Praise

    It's easy to see something is terribly wrong when the people who do the actual work do not agree with the media's praise of their work (a praise motivated by a nefarious, alternate agenda)

    Tux Machines -- our 'sister site' for GNU/Linux news -- started in 2004. We're soon entering 2022.

  6. Improving Gemini by Posting IRC Logs (and Scrollback) as GemText

    Our adoption of Gemini and of GemText increases; with nearly 100,000 page requests in the first 3 days of Decembe (over gemini://) it’s clear that the growing potential of the protocol is realised, hence the rapid growth too; Gemini is great for self-hosting, which is in turn essential when publishing suppressed and controversial information (subject to censorship through blackmail and other ‘creative’ means)

    This page from Balázs Botond plots a graph, based on these statistics that now (as of minutes ago) say: “We successfully connected recently to 1500 of them.” Less than a fortnight ago more than 1,800 capsules overall were registered by Lupa, almost quadrupling in a single year

    The EPO's demise at the hands of people who don't understand patents and don't care what the EPO exists for is a real crisis which European media is unwilling to even speak about; today we share some internal publications and comment on them

    The Central Staff Committee (CSC) of the EPO talks about EPO President António Campinos, arguing that “he seems to subscribe to the Manichean view, introduced by Mr Battistelli…”



  23. Prof. Thomas Jaeger in GRUR: Unified Patent Court (UPC) “Incompatible With EU Law“

    The truth remains unquestionable and the law remains unchanged; Team UPC is living in another universe, unable to accept that what it is scheming will inevitably face high-level legal challenges (shall that become necessary) and it will lose because the facts are all still the same

    The term financialisation helps describe some of the activities of the EPO in recent years; see Wikipedia on financialisation below



  26. [Meme] Germany's Licence to Break the Law

    Remember that the young Campinos asked dad for his immunity after he had gotten drunk and crashed the car; maybe the EPO should stop giving diplomatic immunity to people, seeing what criminals (e.g. Benoît Battistelli) this attracts; the German government is destroying its image (and the EU’s) by fostering such corruption, wrongly believing that it’s worth it because of Eurozone domination for patents/litigation



  27. EPO Dislikes Science and Scientists

    The EPO's management has become like a corrupt political party with blind faith in money and monopolies (or monopoly money); it has lost sight of its original goals and at this moment it serves to exacerbate an awful pandemic, as the video above explains
