Killing stupid software patents is really easy, and you can help

I’ve very rarely come across a software patent that is not really stupid, that does not harm everyone apart from patent trolls and lawyers, and that is not predated by earlier examples of prior art.  This article explains how anyone can easily put a stop to them before they do any damage. Great stuff.
