Resumen: Otra investigación más demuestra lo que siempre estamos viendo – que las patentes de software son una aporte negativa y ahora hay más pruebas que Apple aumenta su extorsión sobre Android (Linux).

Mientras que los grupos como la OIN usa las patentes de software para luchar contra el uso de otras patentes de software[http://www.unixmen.com/software/1789-oin-a-patent-pool-to-protect-linux-users-from-lawsuits] (la lucha de fuego contra fuego, confundiendo a la gente sobre el problema es uno de “calidad”[http://www.lexology.com/library/detail.aspx?g=cfa47bfe-e244-4345-92fc-dd10db9a6bdd]) grupos como la FFII(Fundación para una Infraestructura de Información Libre), nosotros mismos, la FSFE (Fundación Europea de Software Libre), y la FSF (Free Software Fundación) trabajan duro para convencer a la gente de la necesidad de que las patentes de software como un todo tienen que ser abolidas. James E. Bessen, de la Universidad de Boston (cerca de la FSF), ha publicado este artículo académico[http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=1868979##] cuyo resumen dice:

Este informe examina los cambios en el comportamiento de las patentes de la industria del software desde la década de 1990. Se observa que la mayoría de las empresas de software siguen sin patentes, la mayoría de las patentes de software son obtenidas por unas pocas grandes empresas en la industria del software o en otras industrias, y el riesgo de litigios de patentes de software sigue creciendo de forma espectacular. Dados estos resultados, es difícil concluir que las patentes de software hayan proporcionado un beneficio neto social en la industria del software.

También se puede encontrar aquí[http://www.bu.edu/law/faculty/scholarship/workingpapers/Bessen-Generation-Software-Patents.html] y en otros lugares. Carlo Piana dice[http://twitter.com/carlopiana/statuses/84169219897425921]:

Bessen: estudio sobre # swpats muestran un beneficio para los bolsillos profundos y abogados, no SWindustry o la sociedad.

Él también dice[http://twitter.com/carlopiana/statuses/84170937733353472]:

Por supuesto que no necesitamos ningún estudio para observar cómo las #swpats son inútiles y malas #. Sin embargo, es tranquilizador tener pruebas y números lo respaldan

Piana llegó a decir que la única solución es abolir las patentes de software. Él es aparentemente asociados con la FSFE y representó al equipo de Samba en su caso contra Microsoft, que abusa de patentes en este campo (aún lo hace).

El ex jefe de la FFII resume el papel[http://yro.slashdot.org/story/11/06/23/1742209/A-Generation-of-Software-Patents-Examined?utm_source=slashdot&utm_medium=twitter] al escribir:

“James Bessen de la Universidad de Boston ha publicado un estudio de referencia [resumen, texto completo disponible en el enlace, de forma gratuita] en una generación de patentes de software. En cuanto a casi 20 años de las patentes de software, se encuentra “la mayoría de empresas del software todavía no las patenta, la mayoría de las patentes de software son obtenidas por unas pocas grandes empresas en la industria del software o en otras industrias, y el riesgo de litigios de patentes de software continúa aumentar de forma espectacular. Dados estos resultados, es difícil concluir que las patentes de software han proporcionado un beneficio social neto en la industria del software. Hecho “que no sorprende a nadie en actualidad innovando en software.”

El actual jefe de la FFII cita al autor[http://twitter.com/zoobab/statuses/84193092361658368] diciendo que “es difícil concluir que las patentes de software han proporcionado un beneficio neto social en la industria del software”

Apple es por su parte cada vez más de un agresor de patentes[http://www.muktware.com/news/24/2011/1508] contra Linux (esto comenzó el año pasado[http://techrights.org/wiki/index.php/Apple_vs_HTC]):

El Bully de Apple en Cupertino ha presentado una demanda de patentes contra Samsung en Corea del Sur.

No sólo Microsoft está en una posición de tratar de destruir a Linux. Es una plataforma demasiado bueno para construir un sistema operativo a (WebOS, Android, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, etcétera). Apple y Microsoft no pueden competir.

  1. Peak Code — Part II: Lost Source

    "Debian and Mozilla played along. They were made “Yeoman Freeholders” in return for rewriting their charters to “work closely with the new Ministry in the interests of all stakeholders” – or some-such vacuous spout… because no one remembers… after that it started."

  3. Computer Users Should be Operators, But Instead They're Being Operated by Vendors and Governments

    Computers have been turned into hostile black boxes (unlike Blackbox) that distrust the person who purchased them; moreover, from a legislative point of view, encryption (i.e. computer security) is perceived and treated by governments like a threat instead of something imperative — a necessity for society’s empowerment (privacy is about control and people in positions of unjust power want total and complete control)

  4. Peak Code — Part I: Before the Wars

    Article/series by Dr. Andy Farnell: "in the period between 1960 and 2060 people had mistaken what they called "The Internet" for a communications system, when it had in fact been an Ideal and a Battleground all along - the site of the 100 years info-war."

  7. Gemini Lets You Control the Presentation Layer to Suit Your Own Needs

    In Gemini (or the Web as seen through Gemini clients such as Kristall) the user comes first; it's not sites/capsules that tell the user how pages are presented/rendered, as they decide only on structural/semantic aspects

  8. The Future of Techrights

    Futures are difficult to predict, but our general vision for the years ahead revolves around more community involvement and less (none or decreased) reliance on third parties, especially monopolistic corporations, mostly because they oppress the population via the network and via electronic devices

    Misinformation/disinformation in so-called 'news' sites is a pandemic which spreads; in the process, the founder of GNU/Linux gets defamed and GNU/Linux itself is described as the problem, not the solution to the actual problems

  20. Another Video IBM Does Not Want You to Watch

    It seems very much possible that IBM (or someone close to IBM) is trying to purge me from Twitter, so let’s examine what they may be trying to distract from. As we put it 2 years ago, "Watson" is a lot more offensive than those supposedly offensive words IBM is working to purge; think about those hundreds of Red Hat workers who are black and were never told about ethnic purges of blacks facilitated by IBM (their new boss).

    When many services are reliant on the integrity of a single, very tiny MicroSD card you're only moments away from 2 days of intensive labour (recovery, investigation, migration, and further coding); we've learned our lessons and took advantage of this incident to upgrade the operating system, double the storage space, even improve the code slightly (for compatibility with newer systems)
