The EU is the middle of implementing a worrying directive on software patenting. On Tuesday, they passed a report that some groups claim allows for unlimited software patenting. The Greens press release is interesting reading on this. Last week, Arlene McCarthy MEP published an article in the Guardian about why this is a Good Thing™. This provoked a long thread and many replying letters to the Guardian on the UKCDR mailing list about why it's not. Those are all better argued than McCarthy's article and make for interesting reading.
