El lector curioso puede saber ya que Martin Goetz es responsable primero de la génesis de la industria del software. Se da la «feliz coincidencia» de que este buen hombre, este pionero de la industria, también lideró las primeras iniciativas de patentabilidad del software:

«IBM on the other hand was very much against the patenting of software. There was a presidential commission about 1965 that IBM was very involved in. IBM was fighting against the patenting of software and ADR was for it.» An Interview with MARTIN GOETZ, OH 334

¡Gracias Martin!
