We'll see what the next iteration will bring. There will be lots of
theatening and bribing behind the scenes.

   from the (again) dept.
   heretic9 writes "The European Parliament [1]unanimously rejected the
   software patent bill recently put before it. Hugo Lueders of
   [2]CompTIA, a pro-patent lobby group, said that the benefits of the
   bill had been obscured by [3]special interest groups, which [4]muddied
   [5]debate about the rights and wrongs of software patents." Meaning,
   essentially, that the [6]Conference of Presidents got its way.
