This paper points at the structural problems of affording an inappropriately wide variety of state conferred property rights to software. The current system is overly tilted towards producers and rightsholders, and neglects the crucial social importance of the availability of interface specifications. Indications as to measures aimed at correcting the current imbalance are given.
