The Economic Majority website want your support (against software patents)


Wed 29 June 2005 By Stefane Fermigier

The Economic Majority
(against software patents) webstite now has more than 1500 supporters which
is already a fair number, but could use even more support before the
software patents directive get voted by the European Parliament next
week.



There are also many more
testimonies
than last time I checked.



Unfortunately, some MEPs, like Mr Edward McMillan-Scott
(brittish, conservative, vice-president of the Parliament) don't seem to get
it, and still believe that software patents will protect the small business
against the big corporations (they don't seem to have read a single line of
all the economic litterature that has been written on the subject, and
certainly not listened to the real entrepreneurs out there).
