OOh, is the FSF allowed to have patents? If a FSF project or OSS developer
came up with something patentable, could the patent be issued to the FSF (or
the developer and given to the FSF) so that it is then held as free for anyone
to use, and thus stop stupid companies from exploiting software patents?
