EU Software Patent Proposal Postponed Again
The EU parliament postponed until September 22 a vote on software patents that was supposed to happen today. A physical demonstration in Brussels, hundreds of online protests and criticism by computer scientists and economists helped raise opposition to this controversial proposition from MEP McCarthy. This is the second time a vote on this proposition is postponed, the first one was in June.
To whoever think that political agenda cannot be changed by peaceful but determined civil action, think again.
