Newsforge interviews Jon Maddog Hall.

"Either we should bring the laws regarding software into the twenty-first century so a reasonable software programmer can reasonably respect ownership rights (or defend them) without unreasonable time and legal costs, or only large companies will be able to create software in the future. It becomes too complicated otherwise.
I believe that "the common good" in a world-wide software development can not tolerate software patents, needs a shorter time frame on software copyright, and an easier method of determining software ownership or non-ownership. "
