The No Software Patents website has a report on the latest in the software patent saga. Long story short: The European Commission is thumbing its nose (figuratively, of course) at the European Parliament's request to restart the legislative process.

As Foundation for a Free Information Infrastructure (FFII) board member Jonas Maebe asks: "If a set of harmonised rules is truly the number one goal of the Commission, then why is it sabotaging the whole process?" My question: What is it going to take to embarrass the European Council into restarting the process, or dropping this directive altogether?
