"Only six working days remain until the deadline arrives to
submit nominations for the US Patent and Trademark Office's Patent
Public Advisory Committee. If you or someone you know has some
helpful advice for USPTO and is a US citizen willing to serve,
please submit a nomination. A letter and the person's resume is all
you need to send. It doesn't take long, and you can do it by
"Richard M. Stallman, inventor of notable software innovations
including the Emacs editor and the software distribution model
"copyleft", is our choice for the committee. Stallman has shown
reasoned opposition not only to the current trends of patenting
other people's work and trivial new developments, but also to the
patentability of mathematical algorithms and business methods. "A
serious bio" from his web site is the resume he offers; it
summarizes his achievements."
"If you a fan of other patent reform advocates, you might
consider nominating one of them instead of, or in addition to, RMS.
Lawrence Lessig, Eben Moglen and Tim O'Reilly might all make good
committee members. Nominate your favorite. Or if you're ready to
help USPTO fix its broken system, get someone to nominate you."
