This American Life did another pass at the software patents problem by refreshing their episode from two years ago. There are some very interesting updates.

Audio: When Patent Trolls Attack


NPR's This American Life did a feature entitled, "When Patent Trolls Attack" and it is something I think all technology folks should listen to so I embedded it below. Sorry for the limited media format choice provided.

Microsoft Patent Claims

Fortune magazine is playing host to Microsoft's latest attack on free/open source software (FOSS). Kind of like Fox News playing host to Dick Cheney attacking opponents of the Bush administration. I like how the title of the article reads, "Microsoft takes on the free world". It sounds like Microsoft is attacking democracy and all right thinking people. Well, now that I think about it, they are. :-) The article itself is not overly biased considering the audience of Fortune.
