Legal New Zealand leads the way. "The government has announced a change to planned new patent rules today which has put an end to fears that computer software might be covered by new patent protection." Also, here's the evidence that nobody (except lawyers, (un)paid company lackies, and corporate managers) wants software patents: "Matthews said a recent poll of more than 1000 Kiwi IT professionals found 94 per cent wanted to see software patents gone." Let that sink in for a while: 94%.

In fact, a british guy who cut my hair today was allowed to stay in NZ - so the skills that are required to immigrate are kind of random

I would guess he had it easier due to being from another Commonwealth country?

PS. Plus a traditional ~invading country ;)
