ADDING LINKS IS TEMPORARILY BLOCKED - if you want to add a link, just put a space in it so that it doesn't work. The admin will then fix the link for you very quickly. This will be fixed as soon as I have the new spam blocking system in place.
American Intellectual Property Law Association (AIPLA) is an actively pro-software-patent group.
AIPLA publishes information about, among other things, the status of software and business method patents in various countries. For each region discussed, they claim that software patents are available and valid. Given their pro-swpat agenda, the information they publish should be read cautiously.
