End Software Patents (ESP) is an international campaign of the Free Software Foundation for a legislative ban on software patents in all jurisdictions. We believe that software patents constitute a threat to developer freedom. To learn more, check the ESP FAQ and blog.
This community is dedicated to the discussion of software patents. Here you can post anything that is related to software patents. Opposing views are welcome, but only to the extent that they encourage healthy debate. ESP advocates for the total (not partial) elimination of software patents.
This community is run and moderated by supporters of the End Software Patents campaign, not the FSF staff itself. Opinions expressed here do not necessarily represent the FSF or the End Software Patents campaign.
