Hi Folks,

Please email David Simmons today stating your support for the ACIP's
proposal to abolition of innovation patents. Here's some text you might
like to use. You don't need to be fancy, just be heard.

    To: consultation at ipaustralia.gov.au

    Dear Mr Simmons,

    As a member of the software industry, I support the ACIP's
    recommendation to abolish the innovation patent system. In my
    experience, the scheme is not only ineffective in promoting innovation,
    it actively discourages invention and creativity in our industry.

    Yours sincerely,

Thanks to Daniel Black and Jack Burton for being on the front foot with
this. For full details, see here:
