The Patent Pledge

Interesting strategy from one Paul Graham:

The Patent Pledge
No first use of software patents against companies with less than 25 people.

It may be possible to fix a subset of the patent problem without waiting for the government. If companies voluntarily renounce certain uses of patents, we can make patent law a moot point in such cases. [Learn More.]

These companies have agreed to be the first to publicly renounce aggressive use of software patents on small companies. Please join them!
