Petition to White House Directing to Patent Office to Cease Issuing Software Patents

A petition is submitted to the White House directing to the Patent Office to cease issuing software patents.

Under the patent office's current activity, patents have been come a way to stifle innovation and prevent competition rather than supporting innovation and competitive markets. They've become a tool of antitrust employed by large companies against small ones.

If you are also not in favour with issuing software patents, do join in the petition. A whitehouse.gov account is required to sign Petitions.

At present, the total number of petitions submitted is at 6,202, which has already exceeded the goal of 5,000 signatures by October 23, 2011.


Submit your signature in the Petition now!
