Hope In The Patents War

nosoftwarepatents.com is what the FFII Software patents site should have been all along. (Some of you may remember that I ranted about its poor usability and navigability back in May (“Why We Will Lose The Software Patents Battle“). It’s well-designed, visually pleasing, very readable, and clearly outlines both the problems and what people can do about it.

According to The Sydney Morning Herald, the site is sponsored by MySQL, Red Hat and a German company called 1 & 1, and run by activist Florian Müller. Kudos to them and the rest of the team behind the site.

  1. btw, this strange german company called “1 & 1” is the world’s largest hosting provider (hosting 4 million domains and present in several countries including the USA). their hosting is mostly based on linux (although they provide MS-hosting, too)

  2. I’ve been using them for about 4 years, and found them to be very professional and reliable. They have only recently started marketing themselves in America though (believe it or not, they were the world’s largest hosting company before they launched in America).
