How to avoid a specific software patent

Jump to: navigation, search


[edit] Avoiding a specific patent

Richard Stallman discusses three methods to avoid infringing specific patents, and why they don't generally work:[1]

  1. Avoid the patent[1]
  2. Get a licence[2]
  3. Overturn the patent[3] (for many reasons, it happens frequently that Invalid patents remain unchallenged)

[edit] Avoiding all patents

There is one way, and only one way, to avoid software patents with certainty: Use software from 20 years ago.
