Software patents are very good...for shameless people


Like someone who would have the bright idea of patenting a filesystem from the dinousaur era.

Of course, if FAT was "invented" by M$, doing this is certainly 100% ok from the legal point of view.

But from the shame factor point of view? You guys sleep well?

On the positive side: this makes a perfect case for software with clean open licenses!
