    The Dangers of Software Patents

        RMS Speech
        2007-01-16 from 02:00 to 03:30 
        Philadelphia, PA 

    Richard Stallman will explain how software patents obstruct
    software development. Software patents are patents that cover
    software ideas.  They restrict the development of software,
    so that every design decision brings a risk of getting sued.
    Patents in other fields restrict factories, but software
    patents restrict every computer user.  Economic research shows
    that they even retard progress. There is no registration or
    fee and the public is encouraged to attend. Location: Drexel
    University, Bossone Auditorium, Building 7A, 3141 Chestnut
