Submission + - Stallman crashes World Computer Congress session->

schliz writes: Software freedom activist Richard Stallman briefly interrupted a European Patent Office presentation at the World Computer Congress in Brisbane, Australia today, with a placard that said: "Don't get caught in software patent thickets". He told journalists that the Patent Office was "here to campaign in favor of software patents in Australia", arguging that "there's no problem that requires a solution with anything like software patents". Stallman was accompanied by another protestor and distributed printouts of his article about intellectual property being a "seductive mirage".
