64 The Fight Against Patents (page 64)

The Fight Against Patents

    The intension on patents is to give the sole rights to a technical invention in a limited time span so the inventor can benefit from it and in exchange the information about the invention is available for anyone to create new inventions.2013-08-08

    Today most patents do not inspire new inventions and most patentholders use their patents to keep competitors out of the market. Many new IT pa software IT patents al are so broad that they obstruct a whole market area.2013-08-09

    When it comes to Free & Open Software Source Software (FOSS) they can not have patented technology within the software unless the patentholders have granted permission to use it royalfree and other criterias l so the patented technology can be used in the software.2013-08-09

    This way a patentholder can obstruct a whole market area from using FOSS. Where FOSS is a great way to reduce software costs in an open society where ideas and software fragments can be exchanged and reused.2013-08-09

    To get a patent the described invention must be new. The way national patent institutions test if an invention is new is by looking at existing patents. If they don't find any then a test period (patent pending period) is started where others can complain about the patent on the way. If no complains are ma received or the ones received are rejected the patent is granted for a specific time frame.2013-08-09
