"You heard me wrong. Specifically, I do not believe that software patents are valid constructs. I also believe that while, in 30 years from now I will be proven correct, the current environment operates in the context that software patents are valid constructs. So while I don't encourage anyone to get software patents, I also don't discourage them. You have to play by whatever the rules are, even if you don't agree with them. I strongly believe that the current software patent dynamic stifles innovation. Five years ago I was pretty alone in this belief. Today there is an increasing understanding of this, including significant research that has been done to show that software patents are simply a tax on innovation that retards its progress." -
