My take on software patents: http://mtgradwell.blogspot.com/2011/07/software-patentstm.html - Yes, I do mention Larry Page's patent for Search Engine web page ranking technology in the same breath as other patents that I consider to be somewhat dubious. Yes, I do understand that sometimes the aim is to be pre-emptively defensive, to patent something so that the opposition can't do so, rather than patent it as a weapon to hold over their heads; but isn't there something inherently ridiculous about a system which renders such techniques necessary?

Martin Gradwell's profile photo

Update 2 ... but now the silhouette is back. I just don't get it.
