New book: Math you can't use

Ben Klemens
Math you can't use: patents, copyright, and software
Brookings Institution Press, 2006, 346.048 KLE

Gathering persepectives from law, computer science, mathematics and economics, Ben Klemens examines the intellectual property issues surrounding computer software. At the heart of this thoughful investication is an understanding of the need for patents to better accommodate for the unique structure of code and copyright for software, and Klemens makes some important suggestions of how such changes could be effectively implemented.
