Software patents are silly IMO.

So basically you support piracy then? Seems like you have no respect for authors' work. If you made a piece of paid software and then I stole it and made it free on the net, would you like that? I don;t think so. It would take away from your revenue and you won't be rewarded properly for your time and efforts.

Who said anything about piracy? Anyways, the laws on software patents needs an overhaul. These software patents hinders competition, Its ridiculous when upstarts has to pay millions just to add a simple swipe gesture Apple happens to claim it invented.

Oh well let's take it from that view point. Company A spend millions in making product X. Company B wants to borrow it in a design of product Y. Why doesnt company A have the right to lend it out for millions? They pretty much did all the overheads, testing and what not... they deserve that kind of money. What is company B profits like a bitch because of the product X? It happened all cause of Company A's work. Think about that.
