Les Patents ja ens les estan imposant d'amagat, per nasos
19 mai 2004
Els manipuladors del aparell de govern europeu ja van aceptant patens de programari, d'esquena a qualsevol legalitat. Fent ús dels seus estatus de funcionaris, van tirant: Dia: 29/05/2004 Hora 12.00h Lugar: Plaza Llevant (es la conjunción de Rambla Prim con Avda.Diagonal, justo delante de la entrada del Forum) Como llegar: se ha contactado con los organizadores del Forum y han preparado esta página:

Patented European webshop

All of the elements and processes indicated in the graphic below are covered by granted (not just requested) European Patents. This kind of patents would be rendered enforceable by the Commission's and the JURI Committee's proposal, as has been shown elsewhere. The directive as voted by the European Parliament however, makes sure these patents remain what they are today: examples of the EPO's drift towards unlimited patentability, without any legal value whatsoever.

FFII will continue to fight for clear and useful limits on patentability, so that atrocities like those shown below will not make their debut in Europe. If you agree with these goals, please take a moment to sign the petition against European software patents and to sign our Call for Action II (

mail us if you want to be publicly listed there as company, scientist, professional, user group, ...). See this page for more things you can do to help.

Queda una mica cutre i se me traben els dits, però al grà:

lo de la web aquesta del EmForro 2004 i següents, es una merda, sento no haver-ho comprovat abans...

però el fet que el govern de la UE hagi aprobat en una sessió, abans de les eleccions del 13 de juny, en lo que anomenen "primera lectura" donar llum verda per tirar en devant amb el reconeixement de les patents de programari...

posa en evidencia com es troben els ànims i la determinació d'aquesta gent...

Davant la movilització generalitzada a europa contra les seues manipulacions, aposten per una ofensiva radicalitzada a l'espera dels resultats de les mateixes eleccions per rematar la feina en el nou parlament on és ferà "la segona lectura" condicionada d'entrada per ells mateixos.
