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.

If u have software patents, u could patent software in the same way as patenting stairs, and if someone wanted to put stairs in their building, they had to pay u for each steps in the staircase.... Software-patents are bad, ud see...

If i had the money, i would patent something like this: Software to add the number one to one...
Then U all would be in trouble...

U see!!!! Software patents are bad.
