Europarl to discuss ban of all software patents

    guerby writes: Michel Rocard (ex France Prime Minister) now on the
    Committee on Culture, Youth, Education, the Media and Sport is
    proposing an amendment (pdf link) to explicitely rule out patentability
    on information (processing, ...) at the european parliament. The
    rationale is beautifuly written. Let's hope it has some influence on
    the outcome of the ongoing battle to stay free of software patents in

If this is true. Great news indeed :-))
