Legal I've been sitting on this item all day. Technically, it's about patents and the like, and even I understand I've been beating this dead horse so often it almost looks like it's alive. However, this is an interesting opinion piece by Craig Hockenberry, long-time employee at The Iconfactory, one of my favourite software development houses - these guys breath software and beautiful design, and employ one of my favourite artists, David Lanham. The gist of his story? Software patents are killing the independent developer scene.

I think many of OSnews readers including me dont mind the patent news.
What perplex me is the other stories in the submission section ignored for the sake of patent news. And there is some good stuff being skipped regularly.
Many probably never submit anymore for this reason.

Editors have the benefit of pushing though their own articles first.
