SimonC: I approve of the idea of patents. It doesn't work because the whole process has been subverted. With software the problem is even worse and the subversion process - big US corporations and the US patent office - will not reform. Though tongue-in-cheek my idea about patents for individuals and something that cannot be sold is about the least reform that might work. Alternatively sue the US patent office for not checking for prior art and sue Microsoft for ... ... anything. ;-) That's the alternative. In the meantime educating your MEP might not be a bad idea.
