  Admirez à quel point les offices de brevets (celui là est anglais)
  respectent la démocratie, saluent les compétences des élus et ont
  hâte de s'asseoir sur toute forme de projet de loi qui ne va pas
  dans LEUR sens.

  Si vous avez un député (européen ou national d'ailleurs) sous la
  main ou la plume, faites lui donc part de cette information.

Software patent limits 'go too far'

The decision to adopt several amendments to the highly controversial
directive, fundamentally altering its effects, is likely to lead to the
directive's withdrawal by the European Commission, according to Alex
Batteson, IT expert at British intellectual property law firm Bristows.
He  suggested that this might not be a bad thing, since patent reform
could then  be formulated by patent law specialists, without the need
for democratic  scrutiny.

"It may sound undemocratic, but the amended proposals arguably
demonstrate  that the issues being debated here are too complex to be
left to the European  Parliament, which can hardly be expected to have
in-depth expertise in patent  matters," Batteson said in a statement.
"The amendments certainly appear to  have irritated Frits Bolkestein at
the Commission and he may decide to  abandon the directive in favour of
a renegotiation of the European Patent  Convention. This would take the
issue out of the hands of the Parliament and  give it to national
delegations of patent experts."

Hvilken patentekspert vil du stemme på ved næste folketingsvalg?
