EU Throws Out Software Patents Bill! “0”

In a downright brilliant decision, the EU have thrown out a bill which would allow software to be patented!

A fantastic victory for all of those opposed to the bill, I'm absolutely delighted about the action!

The such a decision was voted for 648 to 14, a landslide majority!

I have done so much emailing to make this happen, so I'm pretty chuffed the right choice was made. So are the hundreds of thousands of other EU members who have also been campaigning. It will benefit all of us greatly in the future; the freedom to innovate is a very precious one.

So well done to everyone involved. No doubt this will come back later on, as the big corporations will continue to put pressure on the parliament to reconsider its choice.
