Intellectual Property in Software

I thought you may like to read about A NEW PARADIGM FOR INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS IN SOFTWARE on the Duke Law & Technology Review. This article provides a pretty good starting point if you don't really know what the debate is about. While I would probably have to read some of the articles from the footnotes to be able to actually discuss the issue with anyone, I definitely have a better understanding.

UPDATE: I got an e-mail message that included a link to Patents and Software: The history of intellectual property protection and software has an anomoly that brings strong reactions to software patents. This is easier to read than the above article, and highlights the debate well.
