"10 days of web strike" vs "20 years of patent nightmare"
We are protesting against software patents in Europe.
Most software will become illegal to use in Europe if this dangerous directive is adopted without proper amending.
The European Commission and the Council of Ministers are covertly pushing for unlimited patentability of software, heavily lobbied by multinationals and patent lawyers. They are ignoring the democratically voted decision of the European Parliament from 24 September 2003, which has the support of more than 300.000 citizens, 2.000.000 SMEs, dozens of economists and scientists.
Join us in a demonstration in the streets of Brussels on 14 april 2004.
Join this online protest by changing your homepage from 5 until 15 april.
