America, and indeed the entire western world, is badly in need of both patent reform and copyright reform....

The first thing that needs to happen is that all software patents need to be abolished outright, things like 'slide to unlock' should never be given a patent....

And I know it is not related to this specific case, but

We also need to revise copyright law, it has been more thna 50 years since the last time a book, movie or record album was allowed to enter the public domain....that's ridiculous....

We now have copyrights that are being passed as an inheritance, to the second and third generations, give it 20 years and we will have copyrights that have been held by 4 generations....

George Gershwin died in 1937 (76 years ago) and yet all of his composition are still protected under copyright...the copyrights are now held by his great grandchildren.....and the copyright continues until the year 2032....

this is ridiculous....
