And I live in neither! Patent's in my country are very much explicitly forbidden. Click on my name to see where I live. PS: Oh, and yeah. Since the my country is quite small and I personally know the PM, previous PM, head of the patent office and some important politicians(it's not that unusual in my country), I can pretty much be sure that software patents will never be legalised. Though I am sure that hardware encoders and decoders are very much covered by patents. Software is 100% not.


As a resident of Lithuania who is happily untroubled by software patents, you can still help out the rest of your fellow men and women who live in countries not so blessed by refraining to use patented proprietary technologies over the web. It is the worldwide web, after all.

Thanks for your consideration.
