Patents endangering Open Source Software development

Soon the European Commission is going to vote a revised version of the European Patentability rules. Your support is needed.

The proposed revision contains a set of serious challenges to Open Source development since regulation regarding software patents will be broadly extended and might forbid independent development of innovative (Open Source and not) software-based solutions.
