[ba-unrev-talk] Making the case against software patents?

http://ask.slashdot.org/askslashdot/02/09/04/0445237.shtml?tid=155    (01)

""I'm an open-source developer in a small western nation, which is slowly 
starting to take interest in Open Source, but whose (still MS-dominated) 
government is currently considering adopting a software patents regime 
similar to USA. This nation boasts a smart and feisty IT community, who 
have been terribly under-represented in government. I have a meeting in a 
week with a prominent member of the legislature (who has IT portfolio 
interests), during which I will have the opportunity to put the case 
against software patents. I'm asking for help in assembling information for 
use in the anti-patents case. Thank you dearly for any and all help you are 
able to provide here."    (02)

The responses on this page are pretty useful. For instance, the top 
response listed pointed to this page
which is a compilation of all slashdot discussions related to the topic of 
software patents.    (03)
