companies should not be able to patent ubiquitous internet/software technologies. No matter how much money
they have. I like this question that Pierre Sarrazin asked of Unisys
: "do you agree that an algorithm is equivalent to a theorem, in the sense that for example, the Pythagorean theorem can be considered as an algorithm to find the length of the hypotenuse of a right triangle?" Their answer: "We do not agree or disagree with your statement regarding the relationship between an algorithm and a theorem."
