"So for us and the SwPats war still alive, it is important to collect as much information from everywhere, to get people helping to write and analyze documents (from the Commission for example), to get people speaking at events (I'm speaker at Patinnova for example), to get people maintaining alive in Interent the issue of software patents following our strategy (thanks MS for helping to that with the TomTom case… ;-) One of the main problems that we can find is that our community gets fed up of this long time war and stop pressing and generating opinion. Because our contraries won't stop. They just need to put money in their lobbying machine to continue feeding it up. A next important moment for us will be the new elections to the EP. We should be sure that as many as possible of the candidacies to MEPs declare publicly their position regarding software patents before they are voted. This will help in our work during the next 5 years of their mandate. At least will help us to locate our new potential friends and foes. Finally, we need money. Many of our activists are extremely exhausted because our lack of money. They cannot continue working for free after as many years."
