     replaced link to wikipedia pirate site, with real wikipedia link ("pirate"?) 
      The single most useful site is the [http://swpats.ffii.org/ FFII site] on software patents.  They also have a [http://kwiki.ffii.org wiki] (which contains some different information, so you have to look at both); the main FFII site is sometimes difficult to navigate, but the information there is veyr good.
    - Another site that looks like it contains useful information is http://software-patent.wikiverse.org/
    + Another site that looks like it contains useful information is http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Software_patent
      FFII has a very good short introduction page to point people to: [http://kwiki.ffii.org/ShortIntroEn] URL: http://www.ifso.ie/cgi-bin/wiki.cgi/SoftwarePatents?action=diff
