Via /. this BBC interview with Bruce Perens:
>The biggest challenge that will face us after that is software >patenting.
Software patents that are being accepted are not necessarily >inventions,
their definitions are overbroad. And you can never finish a >patent search.
The definitions are so broad, you can't ever be sure a >company would or
would not assert their patent on what you are doing.
Mind you, I could easily have enjoyed three times as much on this topic!
