For those who still think software should be patentable

Those who think software should be patentable, I do hope you have a change in heart by reading what Donald Knuth, Professor Emeritus of The Art of Computer Programming has written on this issue. And if you do not know who Donald Knuth is, I do not think you are even qualified to think software is patentable (just because you are a lawyer does not mean you can). I do hope the Indian Govt. withstands the pressures from the US and EU and does not enforce it. And I sincerely hope that someone from the minstry of commerce/industry reads this article by Knuth.
