Software patents: Democracy negated

Highlight — Europe is a post-modern banana republic.

NoSoftwarePatents.com reports in a press release that:

The European Commission has reportedly declined the European Parliament’s request for a restart of the legislative process on the controversial software patent directive. The EP had taken a three-tiered decision to ask the Commission to begin the process from scratch.

As previously noted, Europeans have a very strange idea of how democracies should be run.
