Software Patents

Software patents are a scheme set up by the government to allow criminals to scam legitimate business and to stifle innovation. All they have to do is stop issuing them. The problem will then clear itself up as the existing patents expire. Did you know that the patent office issued patents on the idea of offering free WiFi (Wireless Fidelity) in a restaurant? The patent holder says it also applies to using WiFi at home. There is a patent covering any form of remote backup. Did you know there is a patent that covers all possible ways of remotely monitoring any body function? The patent office is patenting needs not novel solutions.
