Induced infringement

From en.swpat.org

Induced infringement is the legal concept of leading third-parties to infringe a patent, and thus being indirectly responsible for their infringement.

For software, this was discussed in the 2008 amicus brief by the American Civil Liberties Union[1] for the in re Bilski case where they warn that sharing technical information about a possibly-patented idea could lead to an suit for induced infringement, thus limiting freedom of speech.
