European Software Patent Vote Delayed Again!
Calum writes "The European Parliament vote on the issue of software patents has been postponed yet again. There has been no reason given for this. The decision to postpone the vote comes hot on the heels of several recent protests on the Internet and in the streets of Belgium. Criticism of the proposal to adopt US style patenting laws for software in Europe has been growing exponentially in recent days and weeks."
