Legal We today face the risk of software patents being approved in the EU because not enough parliamentary members will be showing up to vote. Due to this it is important for those of us who oppose software patents to make sure EU parliament members see the damage software patents cause, so they realize it is important to be there to vote providing the needed absolute majority. But sending out a clear message is also important for the process of patent reform in the US and other places who have fallen into the trap of introducing them.

and they have a template for letter. get the letter, fill in the details and send it to your MP.

we are having elections on May 5th in the UK, when they knock your door to canvass you, ask them how they stand on software patents.

if they have not got a clue, tell them that you will not vote for them, and give them a copy of that letter,
if they support patents, tell them you will not vote for them, and give them a copy of that letter,
if they are against patents, tell them you might vote for them, give them a copy of that letter.
