Software patents are another kind of disease & capitalists are super-spreaders of virus

Patents for capital gain doesn’t create supply chains or help fund the development of medical technologies and software. All it does is make it easier for someone to “own” that technology, to make it quicker and cheaper to restrict others from implementing and sharing tools that people need to survive. It rushes the patent application process so that someone could be able to sue others trying to save seriously ill patients around the world before the global pandemic is over.. abusing and hedging SWAT for mass genocide and protecting its own crony replicas.

99% of R&D in new technologies get their useful funds from general public, and so the outcomes (innovative or repetitive) must belong to everyone, but most corporate governments are working 24/7 to restrict access ejecting some strategic shit excuses, even lifesaving drugs and treatments during a global pandemic. It’s not in our scope to determine the impact of other kinds of patents, but we know specifically that they are terrible for software, and at a time where software is critical to saving lives, expediting software patent applications will only cause harm.

Even in normal times, increasing software patent restriction is harmful to everyone. Software patents threaten all developers, putting them in the line of fire for ruinous lawsuits simply for creating and sharing their own code. Until the day when we can completely, we should be reducing the harm done, not coming up with programs and guidance to accelerate the damage. But in the midst of a global crisis where hundreds of thousands have already died, where supply chains for medical technology are stretched beyond limits, creating a cheaper and easier fast track for causing further patent disruption is downright criminal.

Join together to fight back.

  1. A needle that refuses to go through certain fabric is as ridiculous as today’s computing restrictions. But we laugh about the former, and continue to use the later. Making software a kitchen table issue in every home can at times seem like an insurmountable challenge, but there are so many community members doing incredibly inspiring work driving user freedom forward. https://www.wisepoint.org/6738

  2. Dissecting Mainstream Populism using tools like Raw Ideas, Blunt Views, Real News, Buried Truth, Hidden Social Trends.

    Capital bhakts: People who think they are born to just get richer everyday, somehow.
    Social bhakts: People who DO NOT want to hoard wealth more than they deserve, anyway.

    This is “root cause” of fights since thousands of years of human history. Understand or keep hating each other.
