Kalle i truppen

Kalle Svensson är med i det svenska lag som skall spela VM i Tyskland. Underbart!

Kul att Elmander och Rosenberg fick plats båda två. Men varför kom inte Bengt Andersson med i truppen. Vad kan mer begäras än de insatser han gjort de senaste åren???

Bill Gates om mjukvarupatent

Jag kan inte låt bli att påminna er om den här:

“If people had understood how patents would be granted when most of today’s ideas were invented and had taken out patents, the industry would be at a complete stand-still today. The solution … is patent exchanges … and patenting as much as we can… . A future start-up with no patents of its own will be forced to pay whatever price the giants choose to impose. That price might be high: Established companies have an interest in excluding future competitors.” Fred Warshofsky, The Patent Wars 170-71 (NY: Wiley 1994).
