"In Europe, we got a lot of help from the small companies. They have unions, and the unions talk to the politicians and they tell them that software patents are too expensive, completely unusable, it doesn't work with small companies. In America, from what I've heard, that isn't happening so much. The small companies are all business partners of the mega-corporations, so they're scared of annoying their business partners. In Europe, the same small companies are also business partners of mega-corporations, so there's something missing there. I don't know why the European companies aren't afraid of the same thing. We should get the SMEs active on this."
