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

Original/English

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).

What Else is New


  1. What It Would Take for Linus Torvalds to Leave Linux Foundation Without the Linux Trademark and Without Linux

    It's nice to think that the founder of Linux can just take his project and walk away, moving elsewhere, i.e. away from the Microsoft-employed executives who now "boss" him; but it's not that simple anymore



  2. The Past Does Not Go Away, Except From Short-Term Memories

    People who are drunk on power and money (sometimes not even their own money) like to portray themselves as the very opposite of what they are; but in the age of the Internet it's difficult to make the general public simply forget the past and "move on..."

    Microsoft and Bill Gates have a long history bullying their critics; the quote above (or below) shows how even people who advertise with Microsoft are becoming the target of abuse



  7. 'Best' of Both Worlds: GNU/Linux Freedom + Malware With Keyloggers and DRM

    Running a Microsoft-controlled GNU/Linux instance under Vista 10 ("Windows Subsystem for Linux") in the age of virtual machines, dual boot and containers makes as much sense as chopping some carrots to go with the veal meal to appease vegetarian diners



  8. First They Bribe the Employer, Media Lynch Mobs May Follow

    The 'cancel culture' lynch mobs, which leverage social causes (or marginalised groups), remain a convenient means by which to oust one's political/business opposition; but money too is a massive contributing factor and the more one has of it, the easier it is to control media narrative and subversive focus

    Loss of electronic patient records, ransom and downtime among the severe consequences of deploying Microsoft inside hospitals; yet the media rarely names the real culprit (manslaughter charges theoretically possible) and nobody gets punished except those who offer real solutions

  14. EPO's Illegal Patents and Massive Corruption Go Unnoticed by Corporate Media and Sites That Cover Patent News

    Very major corruption scandals still emerge in Europe's second-largest institution and illegal patents get granted as well as promoted; somehow, perhaps miraculously, this no longer seems to bother anybody in the media (corruption and radical policies have been gradually 'normalised')



  15. Never Mind If GNU/Linux Works Better Inside Hospitals and Free Software Not Only Safer But Vastly More Efficient...

    With lives on the line one might expect hospitals to choose what's most secure and generally works best; but in practice there seems to be a leaning towards what bribes best

  18. They Came, They Saw, He Died

    Microsoft is an inherently sociopathic company; today's story of AppGet is an important reminder that Microsoft has not changed and isn't changing (Maui is another week-old example of trademark-hijacking tactics by Microsoft)



  19. Microsoft-Connected CloudGuru Doesn't Care About GNU/Linux and Now It's Gradually Killing the BSD/Linux-Centric Jupiter Broadcasting (Bought by Linux Academy)

    Assuming Docker is being 'killed' by Microsoft (or at least hijacked to push Windows, Azure and so on) while the GitHub-hosted (Microsoft) CloudGuru, whose co-founder comes from Microsoft, ‘finishes the job’ with Linux Academy and its assets, it’s time to take stock of a pattern/trend that ruins the media too



  20. What Happened to Docker is a Cautionary Tale About the Not-So-New Microsoft

    It’s hardly shocking that Docker collapsed (mass-scale layoffs) after the company had gotten close to Microsoft and got rid of its very own founder (a Red Hat veteran) while the software is being killed off/co-opted by Microsoft (all over the news this week; we’ve omitted links by intention as it’s only puff pieces, no investigative journalism anywhere); we only ask one thing: is anyone paying attention and, if so, what are the lessons learned?

    Our longstanding position on social control media (we reject it and don't participate in it) is only proven ever more justified now that the mere idea of fact-checking is seen as controversial if not illegal

  24. Weaponised Media Promoting an Illegal Patent System (UPC), Exploiting Major Pandemic in the Process

    The whole 'unitary' scam/ploy (merely a Trojan horse for litigation and low-quality/invalid patents) is being promoted by Thierry Breton as EU Internal Market Commissioner (in spite of illegalities and constitutional issues), merely reinforcing the view that the EU is rather complicit in the abuses perpetrated by Team Battistelli; the media in the pockets of oligarchs and litigation firms (fronting for these oligarchs) plays along, as usual

  26. The EPO Became a Very Radical Institution

    Projection tactics are doomed to say more about the people who utilise them than about anybody else; the EPO has become so autocratic and corrupt that corruption is seen as normal and workers who explain this corruption are framed as "irrational" or "crazy" or "radical"

  28. Allegations That Microsoft Will Ruin Besieged Clinics and Hospitals to Retaliate Against Those Who Name the Culprit

    With a broader picture coming into view, as per the above index, we're starting to wrap up the series while issuing a call for more stories and eyewitness testimonies, exposing the nature of attacks on hospitals (those almost always target Microsoft and others' proprietary software, which is technically unfit for purpose)



  29. Microsoft Has Ideas...

    Based on the pattern of media coverage, composed by Microsoft MVPs and Microsoft-affiliated blogs/sites, confusing the public about the meaning of GNU/Linux is reminiscent of an "Extend" phase



  30. ZDNet Proves Our Point by Doing Not a Single Article About Linux (RC7), Only About Linus and Windows Clickbait Junk

    It seems abundantly clear that nobody wants to cover the actual news about Linux and instead it’s all about which PC Linus Torvalds is using (gossip/tabloid); ZDNet‘s latest two articles are an example of this…
