Call for protest: Against software patents -2-

I recently updated my anti software patents demo page (see here) in respect to the newest incidents.

Brussels, wednesday 19th Jan 2005 -- The EU Software Patent Directive has been or will be scheduled on the agenda of the Agriculture and Fishery Meeting of the 24th of January as an A item, i.e. an item that is to be adopted without a vote. This was announced today by officials of the European Commission and of the EU Council Presidency at various meetings. The entry is not on the official meeting calendar yet.

This text is now used in the demo page (instead of the appeal I used last time). Thanks for putting a page like that in front of your entry page to protest against software patents. You can download the actualized version here.
