Please sign

Please take a few seconds to sign this petition, even if you are not from the EU(use "other" for country).

My comment;

"Software patents are exclusively used by
international corporations to discourage innovative development by independent developers, particularly those involved in the Free Software Community."

Europe only

I think this one should be for Europeans only.

There is another group preparing a worlwide petition...
But that is still only a draft!
