Summary:
Given the escalating patenting practices of the European Patent Office (EPO) call Patent critics to a demonstration against biotechnology and software patents on 15 April in in Munich. At the rally on the Marienplatz square is next to another of Richard M. Stallman, founder and president of the Free Software Foundation (FSF) to speak. [...] FFII expert Georg Jakob commented: "EPO and the patent system will benefit from the steady expansion of patentability. A self through self-limitation of the patent system is in crisis not to expect. The price to pay programmers, farmers, and ultimately all citizens." [...] James explains: "The rhetoric behind the Biopatent trend agrees with 95% of software patents agree - the EPA is even talk about" animals and plants as such. "Accordingly, the obvious is the joint action with the Biopatent opponents."
