European software patents stalled

It seems that Poland has withdrawn support for EU software patents, which according to The Register, had scuppered the project, at least for the time being. As a software developer myself, I think that this is great news and look forward to a software industry that doesn't revolve around threats and bullying (some background reading about software patents can be found at the FFII).
