German Parliament takes action against software patentss

Last week the German parliament passed a joint motion addressing the increasingly severa problem of software patent protection, reports IP Watch. The parliament seeks to eliminate non-copyright intellectual property rights on software, ordering the national intellectual property office to reevaluate its regulations on software patents.

Though no reports have been confirmed, the sources say that a similar resolution for the EU parliament may be coming forthwith.
