1. The order given is suitable for reading through the (annotated)
amended directive proposal.

2. The statement represents the CEC hardline, no wonder.

Among the "unacceptable amendments" you can also find Am.75 which just says=

	Recital 18a (new):

	At all events, the legislation of the member states must
	ensure that patents contain innovations and involve an
	inventive step, so as to prevent inventions already in the
	public domain from being appropriated simply by being
	incorporated into a computer program.

Even to people without software expertise, this should make clear
what the patent establishment[1] is aiming at, and that those
"unacceptable" amendments are absolutely necessary.

[1] Seth's notion, I prefer it over "patent movement".
