no software patents for EU

Now here’s some good news.  The EU Parliament voted overwhelmingly (648-14)  to reject the directive on software patents.  Everybody seems to agree that this won’t be the last we hear about this unfortunately.

    I saw http://www.laurathomson.com/2005/07/no-software-patents-for-eu/ and wanted to mention a useful site: http://www.FreePatentsOnline.com

    It provides free patent searching, free PDF downloading, allows annoting documents and sharing them, and free alerts for new documents.

    If you have a spot, a link to let your users know abou the site would be great.
