Summary:
The FSFE is putting software patents back on the agenda after the issue died down a bit in Europe after 2005. In 2005 an important proposal for software patents in Europe was blocked after an 8 year fight. Back in 2005 the mainstream media were very much against software patents, but that position has diluted somewhat over the last few years. The FSFE has multiple ideas on how to do that.
