Poland saves Europe from software patents!

Poland’s vote against the proposed software patent directive means that the pro-software patent lobby now is 16 votes short of a majority, and it will have to renegotiate their current position with the European Parliament. This is great news because it helps to defuse the coming crisis in software patents in Europe. We cannot allow software patents, they do not serve any purpose other than to allow some few companies to tie up the market through a Byzantine net of patented software applications.
