How software patents endanger free and open source software

No software patents in Europe!There is a nice article at Groklaw that has a couple of quotes from Richard M. Stallman, Linus Torvalds and other well known people from the free software and open source world. They tell how software patents are dangerous to them and other small and medium sized companies. And some people, with substantial help from mega-corporations, try very hard to hide this danger from us.

Let me remind you that voting on software patents directive is on 6th of July when European Parliament will have the last chance to prevent disaster from happening. And we, the people, have the last chance to tell them why software patents are so damaging to all of us. We have to convince members of European parliament to vote for Buzek-Rocard-Duff amendments!

I hate to say it, but Europe really don't give a shit. I've contacted several MEP's, not one has bothered to reply.

Complete waste of time and space.
I guess they don't give a shit becase most people also don't care and don't contact them to show them that people who vote for them are worried.
At least you did something and contacted them. If you just e-mailed them you can also try to fax them and if there is still no answer phone them and ask them why don't they reply.
