Why software patents are evil

Why software patents are evil | 64 tech & web | Scoop.it
Yahoo's action against Facebook reminds us why most open source developers hate software patents -- and what one community has done about them

 

By Simon Phipps

 

Mark Cuban is no fool. A tech billionaire, the no-nonsense owner of the Dallas Mavericks is just the sort of person you'd expect to value software patents. So the title of his blog post this Tuesday, "I hope Yahoo crushes Facebook in its patent suit," may not look out of place to you.

 

But wait -- it turns out this is a fake-out. He hates software patents and wants Yahoo to cause so much trouble that Congress has no choice but to finally engage in patent reform:

 

Rather than originating in Congress, it's going to take a consumer uprising to cause change. What better way to create a consumer uprising than to financially cripple and possibly put out of business the largest social network on the planet?

Root Access to Sony Google TVs Allows Streaming of Restricted Content

Root Access to Sony Google TVs Allows Streaming of Restricted Content | 64 tech & web | Scoop.it

It seems GTVHacker has done it again, this time bringing Sony Google TVs a software root that will allow access to restricted content from Hulu, NBC, CBS, ABC, FOX, and others. While the root can be filed among the gentler GTVHacker solutions, it still required some extra effort: try four USB drives with at least 5121MB of storage space, and a month of the GTVHacker team’s time.
