Quote from Software patents 'threaten Linux':
We're looking at a future where only the very largest companies will be able to implement software, and it will technically be illegal for other people to do so. That's a very, very bad situation developing. We must do something so that there is reason for people to innovate, there is reason for people to invent, but that companies can execute without this constant fear that we will be sued into the ground regarding software patenting.
This is the kind of thing I've been worrying about. It's more important than the SCO mess, but there has been very little attention paid to it.
