Al parlamento europero e’ quasi pronto un blitz per cancellare tutti gli emendamenti sulla brevettabilita’ del software approvati nei mesi scorsi. Un bello schifo.
The new text proposes to discard all the amendments from the European which would limite patentability. Instead the lax language of the original Commission proposal is to be reinstated in its entirety, with direct patentability of computer programs, data structures and process descriptions added as icing on the cake. The proposal is now scheduled to be confirmed without discussion at a meeting of ministers on 17-18 May, unless one of the Member States changes its vote.
