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%.

After watching a game or two of rugby you simply cant watch football for a month without shouting at the TV!

How can a rugby player get up and be fine after being crushed by a 150kg player in a tackle yet a footballer roll around for 5 mins because someone pulled his shirt...

Contact in football can be very painful, remember they're running fast and essentially almost kicking each other. If not for rules, there would be lots of broken legs.
