Craig Hockenberry: The Rise and Fall of the Independent Developer

In this blog post Craig Hockenberry comments on the latest developments in the software licensing and patent business.

What he writes makes me angry and very sad, because broad software patents like the ones Lodsys possesses will lead only to less diversity and less quality in all software markets. Patent trolls like Lodsys are like bullies; they go after the small developers first and don’t take on the bigger companies because know they’ll lose.
