Submission + - Aussies petition to abolish software patents->

schliz writes: Australian free software enthusiasts, including open source luminaries Jonathan Oxer and Andrew Tridgell, have signed an open letter urging the Government to abolish software patents. The letter, which claims that "software patents are dangerous and costly to business and the community", is expected to be delivered to Innovation Minister Kim Carr this month, ahead of a Federal Advisory Council on Intellectual Property (ACIP) Review of Patentable Subject Matter report that will be released in early 2011.
