Drishmung (458368) writes "Retired Judge Paul Michel, who served on the Federal Circuit 1988-2010---the court that opened the floodgates for software patents with a series of permissive decisions during the 1990s—thinks software patents are good. Yes, the patent system is flawed, but that means it should be fixed. Ars Technica have a thoughtful interview with him. Ars take: "If you care most about promoting innovation, offering carve-outs from the patent system to certain industries and technologies looks like a pragmatic solution to a serious problem. If you're emotionally invested in the success of patent law as such, then allowing certain industries to opt out looks like an admission of failure and a horrible hack.""
