    IBM frees 500 software patents

    Computer giant IBM says 500 of its software patents will be released into the open development community.

    The move means developers will be able to use the technologies without paying for a licence from the company.

    IBM described the step as a "new era" in how it dealt with intellectual property and promised further patents would be made freely available.
