Dear FFII supporter ,The adoption of the Council's software patent agreement seems to have been postponed once more.
We heard this from various knowledgable sources, but it has not been publically confirmed by the Council presidency.
If the adoption is postponed, the Parliament will have the chance to restart the procedure
. Even Klaus-Heiner Lehne MEP (German Christian Democrat), who is presiding over the decisions in the legal affairs committee (JURI) and has gone to some lengths to resist the restart while spreading the latest fallacies of the patent lobby, agreed that he would be open to the restart project if the Council postponed once more.
We will see a lobbying blitz of unprecedented proportions on the part of the patent industry in the coming weeks and months.
If we can obtain neither a discussion in the Council nor a restart in the Parliament, we enter a second reading. In that case the newly elected Parliament will have only 3-4 months to react and it will factually need a 60-70% majority against the Council's proposals. This would be a highly risky game, and we would also lose our best chances of melting the ice in the Council.
Yet even in a 2nd reading we should win. We are offering proven solutions, whereas the patent industry is throwing
