    Damn, EU really sucks

    I hope Norway doesn't apply for a EU membership.

    is this about that software patent in EU? so they've done it already? sucks! i voted against it even though i'm not from europe. it could coz a domino effect, that's why. other regions/countries might follow. this is terrible indeed.

    Very much

    Hmm.. I hope that if enough negative reponse hits EU they will withdraw this if possible. We don't need yet another USA on this. Just look at the Amazon people, that shouldn't be allowed.

    It means a lot if you are involved in web page or software production. The webshop page that andutt linked to gives some good examples. Got a shopping cart on your website with a VISA image? Good, you'll be paying royalties to someone for the pleasure of using it. Got a tabbed section? Send the cheque to Adobe then.

    It's granted patents to common sense ideas and activities used in puters and the net. We all laughed when BT tried to assert copyright over the hyperlink, and this is in the same league.
