One thing I see is this sentence:

> Software development has no constraints -
> patents would add constraints (whereas in
> other fields it just increases constraints,
> which is simply a matter of degree - for
> software it changes the development
> process completely).

The point in parenthesis is important of itself, and need not be hidden away
by brackets. How about...

"Software development has no constraints. In other fields, patents add to
the constraints of development. However, in software, the new constraints
would require a radical change in the development process."
