Det må man vist også i Danmark, det er jo esentielt det
samme som at tage en fotokopi af patent ansøgningen, eller
at omskrive denne. 

Derimod må man ikke bruge patentet erhvervsmæssigt, dvs.
bruge et kompileret program der indeholder et software
patent erhvervsmæssigt.

Om det at have en kompileret version af et stykke software, 
der bryder med et software patent, til download under GPL
som privat person på sin private webside er 'erhvervsmæssig brug' 
eller massedistribution er uvist.

Det vil dog være en væsentlig barriere for udbredelsen af
Open Source hvis alle brugere skal kompilere softwaren selv.
