At least it's short
Below are a couple of (well I think so anyway) interesting articles on topical IP issues.
The first is an argument by a US patent attorney about why software ought to be patented. It is rabidly pro-patent in a way that is probably as unbalanced as many of the anti-software-patent pieces I've seen, and some of the arguments in favour could easily be challenged. But within all the bombast are a few gems.
The other one is about copyright collection societies and the challenges that face them, and how one society is trying to deal with those challenges.
That's all I got. Not every post has to be about politics, people.
