Deconstructing software copyrights

Author: JT Smith

The study is at Bustpatents.com. "For over thirty years, software copyright has been a succession of court cases and law review articles based on bad law, bad logic, bad
mathematics, and/or bad physics (Benson, CONTU, Whelan and Altai being all of these). I have decided to write a critical review
arguing that software copyright (and dependents like TRIPS, GPL, Bernstein, Junger) should be abolished in light of 17 USC 102b and its
equivalents - for one reason - it is bad law with no logical basis in the mathematics and physics of information processing."
