  • No, unpatented software does not provide adequate incentives

    No, software should not be unpatentable. The patent system allows creators to protect and profit from their work. Profit is a strong motivator, and helps to drive the creation of new ideas and products. Creators should be able to profit from their work without worrying that others will try to take it away from them.

  • No, Software Should Remain Patentable

    If one does good work which other people desire to use, they should receive compensation for that work. Without such a system, people who do less work could benefit from that of more skilled and harder working people. Innovation could also be stifled in some ways, though, yes, it could expand in others.

  • No, it should not.

    Software programs, like any other invention, is the product of untold hours of work and creativity. Scientific and medicinal breakthroughs and physical inventions are all valid for patents so there is no reason to contest the ability to patent an intellectual invention. While the nature of software makes it far more difficult to curtail knockoffs, the original marketed idea should be marked by its creator.
