[edit] Software patents are unreadable

There used to be an article, Software patents are unreadable, but it got merged into this article on 2010-05-18. Ciaran 01:47, 18 May 2010 (UTC)

[edit] Still useful after 20 years

Note: we should avoid saying that software innovations aren't useful after 20 years. It's not true, and it means that the 20-year term isn't a problem since the idea stops being useful before that term runs out, so being 20 years or 40 years wouldn't make a difference.

The real point is that 20 years wouldn't have been necessary for others to figure it out, so we'd be better off if people used trade secret law. Ciaran 00:49, 20 July 2010 (UTC)
