US Gov't Promoting Patent Extremism in the European Parliament
All the more scarier for the PNAC site earlier. I'm still trying to work out whether I'm subject to the bias of one side over another, or if the FFII actually know what they're talking about, much more than the politicians deciding the rules. Either way, it's still obvious that a software patent system would shove power over ideas further into the hands of the large companies, globally if this latest news has anything to do with it. And I can't think where all of the large companies are generally based, nooo... Gah.
I still haven't heard back from my MEP handling the patent issue, I will have to follow it up. The issue is quite sickening, really.
