And finally software patents have become a site of conflict where not only different business models but also different vision of the knowledge society clash. [...] More specifically we have analyzed the conflicts around two recent EU directives the first EU directive on the enforcement of intellectual property rights (IPRED 1) and EU directive on the patentability of computer-implemented inventions (Softwarepatent Directive). The study aims to explain why in the first case the decision making process followed the dominant maximalist rights culture, while in the second case the arguments of the proponents of alternative regulation modes have been heard. We argue that dynamic relational aspects are crucial to understand the structure of the conflicts and to explain their outcomes. It is important to take a closer look at the relations between the actors and at the characteristics of the networks.
