There's not much we can do up here in Canada -- as far as I know, most
countries don't allow software patents; however, the U.S. does, and
it's too big a market for the rest of the world to ignore.

The American readers of this list have a big election coming up, and
they have candidates from both parties trying to get support from the
tech industry.  Make software patents an issue now, when you have the
chance, and do the rest of us a big favour.


All the best,


David
