(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
There are also manymore testimonies than last time I checked.
Unfortunately, some MEPs, likeMr 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).
