NO Software Patents in Europe

10 days of web strike Vs 20 years of patent nightmare

We are protesting against software patents in Europe.

Most software will become illegal to use in Europe if this dangerous directive is adopted without proper amending.

The Commission and the Council of Ministers are covertly pushing for unlimited patentability of software, heavily lobbied by multinationals and patent lawyers. They are ignoring the democratically voted decision of the European Parliament from 24 september 2003, which has the support of more than 300.000 citizens, 2.000.000 SMEs, dozens of economists and scientists.

Join us in a demonstration in the streets of Brussels on 14 april 2004.

Join this online protest by changing your homepage from 5 until 15 april.

No to software patents in Europe!

Most software will become illegal to use in Europe if this dangerous directive is adopted without proper amending.

The European Commission and the Council of Ministers are covertly pushing for unlimited patentability of software, heavily lobbied by multinationals and patent lawyers. They are ignoring the democratically voted decision of the European Parliament from 24 september 2003, which has the support of more than 300.000 citizens, 2.000.000 SMEs, dozens of economists and scientists. The Indymedia United Kollectives believe that there are times when we need to be confrontational in our actions, as descrived in our mission statement

There will be a demonstration in the streets of Brussels on 14 april 2004.

This is an online protest placing a warning on your homepage; it runs until 15 April. You can join in too!
