Software patents – a failing of the patent system


This story is yet another example of why patenting software techniques is both dangerous and stifling to the growth of the both types of software models (closed and open).

Singapore patent laws were last updated in 1996 and I am not sure if there are provisions for software patents. This is something that must be looked into so as to ensure that we do not fall into this morass.
