|>>Basically says it's a job for the New Parliament after elections.
I'm not an activist, I'm just an ordinary punter who'll speak with his
wallet and with his vote.
Due to the fact that the European Parliament elections use proportional
representation, I'm quite happy to throw a few votes in the direction of
the local MEP candidates who are anti-software patent and
anti-EUCD-like-stuff in general. With the European elections coming up
in a few weeks, I'm shopping around for politicians to votes for.
Does anyone know of any websites that have a Europe-wide tables of the
Parties/EP Grouping/MEPS/Candidates and their positions on software
patents? As far as I can see, the Greens are the only party that clearly
are against them. And while I'm willing to give them some of my votes,
there may be other candidates out there who might match my other
political views more closely.
In a nutshell: "I don't like software patents - tell me who I can spend
my votes on."
