Software Patents Don't Compute

Ben Klemens, IEEE Spectrum, Aug 17, 2005
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Could you patent a pri nciple of mathematics - 2+2=4, say? No, it wouldn't make sense. Then what to make of this argument, which says, in a sentence, "No clear boundary between math and software exists"? The rest of the article draws out the argument, making the point clear. But, of course, it should have been already clear to anyone who has studied mathematics and logic. Via Stuart yeates.
