The Case against Weapons Patents.

20th century Terrorists like Andreas Baader or Ulrike Meinhof could not learn from Weapons Patents how to build bombs.

But by April 19th 1999 the USPTO put its Patents online - including weapons patents. Including US Patent US5698812 Thermite destructive device. And worse. Patents comprise instructions explaining how to build the patented stuff.

Thus 21th century Terrorists like Mohammed Atta have easy access on instructions how to build Weapons. This is not acceptable. This is one reason why Weapons patents should be banned.
