Legal The UK Government has responded to a petition regarding software patents: "The Government remains committed to its policy that no patents should exist for inventions which make advances lying solely in the field of software. Although certain jurisdictions, such as the US, allow more liberal patenting of software-based inventions, these patents cannot be enforced in the UK."

Sofware patents are only good for the companys, but not good for the users.

Even then, they're NOT good for MOST companies... Only the first ones to the patent office...
