Comment Patents are not a natural right (Score 1) 392

They are a political and economic tool to advance economic growth and development of new technology.

In the software world where there are many people working on the same problem, and finding the same solutions. Patents are of no use whatsoever.

I would like to be proven wrong though. Is there any examples of software that would not have been developed without software patents?
