[Sarcasm:] In defense of software patents 

,----[ Quote ]
| Patent advocates, large successful businesses, and politicians are so 
| enthusiastic about the patenting of software that it’s hard to accept 
| arguments from people like the FFII and Free Software Foundation who claim 
| that the software industry simply does not need software patents and would be 
| far better off without them. In this article I’ll try to explain why software 
| patents are necessary, and in the sake of fairness I’ll look at the other 
| side of each argument. Here is the “defense of Software Patents”. I report, 
| you decide.

Microsoft, the art of Corporate Terrorism.

,----[ Quote ]
| Microsoft, no longer the technological leader in the Computer Desktop
| market, is taking on a terrorist role in its attempt remain in power
| at all costs. (see the link to the CNN story below)
| The tactic is intended to frighten current, and would be, free 
| software users away from products that Microsoft just can't compete
| with. It's not a new tactic, but for the first time desperation is
| beginning to show.


Convicted Monopolist Terrorizes Software Industry

,----[ Quote ]
| That headline is designed to grab your attention. Sensationalistic as
| it may be, it also happens to be true, if what you mean by 'terrorize'
| is to provoke fear.
| If you've been following the presidential race in the United States,
| you know the present crop of candidates have been exploiting the fear
| of the American people as they never have before in the history of
| the country.
