SOFTWARE PATENTS ANOTHER STEP CLOSER MAYBE PERHAPS


The software patents debacle still isn’t over, the Register reports. Last week the EU parliamentary JURI committee voted to scrap amendments to the Computer Implemented Inventions Directive. The abandoning of the amendments will make protecting direct software patentability of computer programs, data structures and process descriptions a realistic possibility according to the Directive’s critics. Now, according the register, lobbying groups from both sides are pulling out the stops to get their point across before the EU Parliament (which is expected to accept the Directive in its common form) votes on the issue on 6 July.

The IPKat looks forward to when this issue is finally resolved.

Both sides of the argument here and here
