Aunque Infosys está teniéndo dudas aparentemente (o afirmaciones contrarias)

Sumario: Una mirada a ¿quién dentro de la India está promoviéndo las patentes de software y porque

ƇON las patentes de software en la India estándo cada vez más en la agenda (debido a cabilderos/grupos de presion por las patentes de software proveniéntes del extranjero) debemos prestar atención de cerca a lo que sucede en ese país. Las cosas pueden empeorar mucho allí (lo que más tarde se extenderá a otros países), los chacales (grupos de presión) de las grandes corporaciones de otros países tratan de cambiar sin descanso la ley de un país que ellos perciben como si fuese de ellos con opción de compra (con una población grande y no demasiado difícil de sobornar comparación a otros lugares debido a las diferencias económicas). Ahora tenemos que mirar muy de cerca los que cooperan en estos esfuerzos a nivel nacional, es decir, desde dentro de la industria de la India. Una de estas empresas es Tata. Escribimos sobre Tata en 2010 en relación con sus ambiciones de patentes y que anteriormente también habíamos comentado sobre sus conexiones con Microsoft. La empresa, a veces, muestran signos de mirar más allá de software propietario y tratando de abrazar al software libre/código abierto (FOSS), sino ¿qué tipo de aliado podría ser la empresa si ahora persigue patentes de software? De acuerdo con los medios de comunicación de la India, e.g. [1, 2, 3, 4, 5], el maximalismo de patentes está altaménte en la agenda de Tata este nuevo reporteemarca esta pelea como una entre grandes de ITyempresas surgiéntes”. Para citar:

Las líneas de batalla se perfilan en la industria de la tecnología de las patentes de software como los peces gordos y nuevas empresas que debaten sobre si debería permitirse patentar el software. En una reunión organizada por el gobierno esta semana, una guerra de palabras estalló entre los arranques tradicionales centradas en los servicios de la India de la industria IT y nuevas empresas, ambas de los cuales tienen preocupaciones acerca de las reglas.

Si bien los arranques dijo que permitir cualquier tipo de patentes obligaría a los costos de litigio y de la licencia en ellos, la industria de IT y las compañías multinacionales de tecnología argumentaron que la ley actual que no permite patentar el software está dando lugar a una pérdida de la propiedad intelectual y las inversiones de la país.

En el centro de la cara-off es un conjunto de pautas que la Oficina de Patentes introdujo en agosto de 2015 para las invenciones informáticas (CRI), e implementada en febrero de este año después de una gran reacción de nuevas empresas y empresas de software del producto. Las directrices sugeriéron que si un software es novedoso, o inventivo o es tangible, y tiene buen efecto técnico o aplicación industrial, entonces puede ser patentado.

[...]

Tata Consultancy Services, Infosys y Wipro, que también estuvieron presentes en la reunión, no respondiéron a los correos electrónicos en busca de comentarios.

Wipro and Infosys estuviéron haciéndo el cabildeo de Microsoft en la India, e.g. on OOXML,así que su silencio habla por ellos y su inpopular posición en la materia. Tata Consultancy Services, Wipro e Infosys son todavíade facto Microsoft proxies o sus actuales departamentos periféricos en Indiay ellos necesitan ser rechazados, no sólo por corrupción. Aquellos que se oponen a las patentes de software necesitan entender la dependencia de fuerzas del exterior tales como Microsoft para entender mejor esas políticas.

What Else is New


  1. The Quality of Patents is Connected to the Quality of Life of Patent Examiners

    EPO staff is not happy (a new President has not changed things) and the problems associated with low quality of patents become more visible in courtrooms



  2. American Patent Courts Keep Narrowing Patent Scope, No Matter What Few Politicians Are Doing on Behalf of Litigation Firms and Patent Trolls

    Acts of desperation in the patent microcosm of the United States, where judges now overwhelmingly reject software patents at all levels (tribunals, lower courts, higher courts)

  4. Links 24/4/2019: Chrome 74, QEMU 4.0 Released

    Links for the day



  5. Supreme Court of the UK, Which Habitually Throws Out European Patents, May Overturn Troublesome Unwired Planet v Huawei Decision

    A lot of European Patents are facing growing scrutiny from courts (Team UPC, including Bristows, publicly complains about it this month) and "greenwashing" of the Office won't be enough to paint/frame these patents as "ethical"



  6. German Federal Patent Court Curbs the Patent Maximalism of the EPO, Which Promotes Patents on Nature and/or Maths Every Single Day

    European courts are restraining the EPO, which has been trying to bypass or replace such courts (with the UPC); it certainly seems as though European Patents rapidly lose their legitimacy or much-needed presumption of validity



  7. Any 'Linux' Foundation Needs to Be Managed by Geeks, Not Politicians and PR People

    Linux bureaucracy has put profits way ahead of technical merits and this poses a growing threat or constitutes risk to the direction of the project, not to mention its ownership



  8. Links 23/4/2019: Kodi 'Leia' 18.2 and DeX Everywhere

  9. Code of Coercion

    Entryism is visible for all to see, but pointing it out is becoming a risky gambit because of the "be nice!" (or "be polite!") crowd, which shields the perpetrators of a slow and gradual corporate takeover



  10. António Campinos Would Not Refer to the EPO's Enlarged Board of Appeal If He Did Not Control the Outcomes

    António Campinos and his ilk aren’t interested in patent quality because his former ‘boss’, who publicly denied there were issues and vainly rejected patent quality concerns as illegitimate, is now controlled by him (reversal of roles) and many new appointees at the top are "yes men" (or women) of Campinos, former colleagues whom he bossed at EUIPO (as expected)

  12. USPTO and EPO Both Slammed for Abandoning Patent Quality and Violating the Law/Caselaw in Order to Grant Illegitimate Patents on Life/Nature and Mathematics

    Mr. Iancu, the ‘American Battistelli’ (appointed owing to nepotism), mirrors the ‘Battistelli operandi’, which boils down to treating judges like they’re stooges and justices like an ignorable nuisance — all this in the name of litigation profits, which necessitate constant wars over illegitimate patents (it is expensive to prove their illegitimacy)

  16. The EPO's Use of Phrases Like “High-Quality Patent Services” Means They Know High-Quality European Patents Are 'Bygones'

    The EPO does a really poor job hiding the fact that its last remaining objective is to grant as many European Patents as possible (and as fast as possible), conveniently conflating quality with pace

  19. The Likes of Chartered Institute of Patent Attorneys (CIPA), Team Campinos and Team UPC Don't Represent Europe But Hurt Europe

    The abject disinterest in patent quality and patent validity (as judged by courts) threatens Europe but not to the detriment of those who are in the 'business' of suing and printing lots of worthless patents



  20. The Linux Foundation Needs to Change Course Before GNU/Linux (as a Free Operating System) is Dead

    The issues associated with the Linux Foundation are not entirely new; but Linux now incorporates so many restrictions and contains so many binary blobs that one begins to wonder what "Linux" even means



  21. Largest Patent Offices Try to Leave Courts in a State of Disarray to Enable the Granting of Fake Patents in the US and Europe

    Like a monarchy that effectively runs all branches of government the management of the EPO is trying to work around the judiciary; the same is increasingly happening (or at least attempted) in the United States

  24. Freedom is Not a Business and Those Who Make 'Business' by Giving it Away Deserve Naming

    Free software is being parceled and sold to private monopolisers; those who facilitate the process enrich themselves and pose a growing threat to freedom in general — a subject we intend to tackle in the near future



  25. Concluding the Linux Foundation (LF) “Putting the CON in Conference!” (Part 3)

    Conferences constructed or put together based on payments rather than merit pose a risk to the freedom of free software; we conclude our series about events set up by the largest of culprits, which profits from this erosion of freedom



  26. “Mention the War” (of Microsoft Against GNU/Linux)

    The GNU/Linux desktop (or laptops) seems to be languishing or deteriorating, making way for proprietary takeover in the form of Vista 10 and Chrome OS and “web apps” (surveillance); nobody seems too bothered — certainly not the Linux Foundation — by the fact that GNU/Linux itself is being relegated or demoted to a mere “app” on these surveillance platforms (WSL, Croûton and so on)



  27. The European Patent Office Does Not Care About the Law, Today's Management Constantly Attempts to Bypass the Law

    Many EPs (European Patents) are actually "IPs" (invalid patents); the EPO doesn't seem to care and it is again paying for corrupt scholars to toe the party line



  28. The US Supreme Court (SCOTUS) Once Again Pours Cold Water on Patent Maximalists

    Any hopes of a rebound or turnaround have just been shattered because a bizarre attack on the appeal process (misusing tribal immunity) fell on deaf ears and software patents definitely don't interest the highest court, which already deemed them invalid half a decade ago
