Save Europe from Software Patents

This wednesday the European parliament will cast its last vote on the issue of software patents in Europe. I hope a majority of MEP will vote in favor of the Buzek-Rocard-Duff amendments (or withdraw it) and save Europe from software patents. Not only this will save us from the nonsense that is going on in the U.S. but it will give Europe, and its numerous open source projects and web startups, a tremendous competitive advantage.
