As you may or may not know, the European Union is reconsidering patent
law once again. This is a very serious matter, as there is a distinct
possibility that software patents could be introduced in Europe. We
might even see the US software patent validity extend to our nations.
The European Union has launched a consultation process regarding this
matter. This is where you can really get your voice heard. The
deadline was originally March 31st, but has now been extended to April 12th:
This is probably in no small part thanks to FSFE's associate
organisation FFII, who also have a website with useful info about this
If anyone is stuck for time, they could endorse FSFE's response, and if
they have time, they could add comments or examples of there own.
A html copy of FSFE's response is now at:
Please *do* send a comment if you can, or (even better!) endorse the
FSFE position on the matter.
