    It'll only make the big companies try to establish software patents country by country instead of all in one, big, swoop. But it's still good news. :)

    And wasn't Software Pantents banned in the EU a long time ago? No one seems to care. This is really ridiculous.

    I don't understand a lot about the issue of software patents, but I do know that a lot of my colleagues wanted to see this bill rejected. So congratulations to them, and other developers who were concerned about this!
