GNU.org: Letter from RMS to Tim O'Reilly

Mar 12, 2000, 16:27 (5 Talkback[s])
(Other stories by Richard Stallman)

"Here's a message that Richard M. Stallman sent to Tim O'Reilly on March 11, in regard to the statement by Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon, which called for software patents to last just 3 or 5 years."

"The idea that software patents should last 3 or 5 years has been proposed for a decade now, as a compromise that would eliminate most of the harm that software patents now do. Support for this idea from Jeff Bezos is a good thing, since it may bring us a step closer to action by Congress. Congratulations for helping to bring this about."
