EU Parliament bins software patent bill

Publié le :

EU Parliament bins software patent bill, by 648 votes to 14, with 18 abstentions. It's pretty unusual if I'm correct for those sort of things to happen in the European legislative system, but it's not like the Commission has made a good job here, by consistently and patently (if I may) ignoring all the previous votes of the MEP. Reading that "no directive was the best directive we could hope for" tells a lot about this whole affair.
