The European Parliament will have a vote on the issue in September about

software patents. We are in the works to make that little difference by

putting pressure on the Hungarian government to withdraw their support for

the current draft.

We plan a demonstration and talks. Our last – and only – chance to influence

the decision to be made seems to be to put some pressure on the officials

involved by means of a demonstration, similar to what has happened in

Brussels or in Vienna.

If you are against software patents, please join us! (updates will be

available)

Update: The demonstration will be held at 15:30-17:00, 24th august, 2004, in

the front of Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Budapest.

If you are undecided, please check for information on

or Wikipedia a bit.

Terrible times come for developers…

Software patents are BAD! Punish our creativity some other way!
