I am concerned by the possible use of software patents to patent business methods, education methods, health methods, etc.
I am concerned by the current track record of abuses from the European Patent Office, especially by their tendency to abuse their judicial power to extend the scope of patentability.
I am surprised that no economic report has ever been published by European Authorities to study the impact of software patents on innovation and competition.
I urge decisionmakers at all levels in Europe to enforce the Law, which clearly prohibits patenting pure computer programs, instead of changing it.
I urge decisionmakers at all levels in Europe to reconsider their current plans and to make sure patents are not abused to prohibit or restrict the dissemination of computer programs and intellectual methods.
