That doesn't explain any need for patents, fsckwit.  Just keeping
their code secret, and having copyright protection, is sufficient.

Neither open source or closed-source depends-on "everyone being nice
to each other".  We all know that there are thieves and scumbags in
the world.  There are copyright laws and various licenses available to
prevent theft and abuse of code.

Software patents are not needed, you stupid shit.
