Poland Helps Halt EU Patents
As many of my incredibly intelligent, talented and loyal readers will already know the European Union and the asshats lobbying for it are trying to get Patents bought in. Apparently the economy and IT industry haven’t had enough problems recently so they’d like to add a new, all-encompassing one.
As you may gather I’m not a huge fan of patents and I’d hate to see Europe adopt them, something which has come way too close to happening a number of times; but now we have Poland!
The Polish government, my new best friends, have withdrawn their support from the European software patent directive and helped (hopefully) to torpedo its introduction.
