Experts Debate Software Patent Reform

BoingBoing points to a debate on software patents occuring on Dec. 7 at the Brookings Institution. If you are in the D.C. area next week, you might want to register and attend to bolster audience support for software patent reform.

From the event's moderator:
There'll be two of the best advocates against software patents, Richard Stallman (of the FSF) and Brian Kahin (of the Ford School at UMich and the CCIA); and there'll be two of the best advocates for software patents, Ken Dam (who sired many a software patent as a former IBM VP), and Emery Simon (of the Business Software Alliance, one of the key players in passing the DMCA).
