The USPTO wants to hear from the software community[0]. Interesting, but the problem is that the “software community” includes more than just those who find software patents to be an abomination.

I have mentioned issues with software patents in a previous post[1], but one resource that may be worth looking at direclty is “The Case Against Patents”[2] [pdf].
