Patent Absurdity

geschrieben von Stefan Meretz am 21. April 2010, 08:50 Uhr

[1]The movie Patent Absurdity [2] is based on a series of interviews conducted during the Supreme Court’s review of »in re Bilski« [3] — a case that could have profound implications for the patenting of software in the US. The most impressive movie part is the acoustical demonstration (27:45–28:33) of Richard Stallman’s illustration (16:26–17:45) of what would have happened to Beethoven’s symphony when they have had patents on musical elements in Beethoven’s times.

The movie was released unter CC BY-ND license allowing copying and (commercial) usage, but disallow publication of derivative works. The movie can be watched here [4] or downloaded here in free OGG format [5]. Subtitles are partly available here [6]. [via [7]via [8]via [9]]
