Don Marti put out a call to nominate Richard M. Stallman to the USPTO's
Patent Public Advisory Committee on 3 April 2001.  Don Marti's full essay
is available at  Here is
the quote that gives you the key points:

    Only six working days remain until the deadline arrives to submit
    nominations for the US Patent and Trademark Office's Patent Public
    Advisory Committee.  If you or someone you know has some helpful
    advice for USPTO and is a US citizen willing to serve, please submit a
    nomination. A letter and the person's resume is all you need to
    send. It doesn't take long, and you can do it by e-mail.

    Richard M. Stallman, inventor of notable software innovations
    including the Emacs editor and the software distribution model
    "copyleft", is our choice for the committee.  Stallman has shown
    reasoned opposition not only to the current trends of patenting other
    people's work and trivial new developments, but also to the
    patentability of mathematical algorithms and business methods.  "A
    serious bio" from his web site ( is the
    resume he offers; it summarizes his achievements.
