Thank You, Poland!

Originally objecting in December, the Poles original objections have continued to block software patents from being introduced to the EU. While this is a battle won rather than the war, it's an important step.

Sadly, our own Government's views differ:
Even the UK Government, one of the strongest supporters of the proposed text, admitted that "Clarity will only come from the first test case in a European court."
Gotta love that "we support it, even though we don't actually know what it means" line -- a clear admission that they support what they're told to by their corporate supporters, surely?
