Hi all,

I just join the ML. To awnser Benjamin's question:

The ITRE committee is the lead committee for the file, with the main
rapporteur being the (infamous) Pilar Del Castillo (EPP).

LQDN maintains a wiki page on the telecoms package. The deadline for
amendment in ITRE is scheduled for late-March.

Hope this helps,

"Proposals for amendments reflecting the recommendations of this open
letter, to be sent to key members of the EU Parliament before the
first crucial vote on the Telecoms Package in late April."

Is it passed committee stage yet? If not, which committee(s) are

"In July 2005, after several failed attempts to legalise software
patents in Europe, the patent establishment changed its strategy.
Instead of explicitly seeking to sanction the patentability of
software, they are now seeking to create a central European patent
court, which would establish and enforce patentability rules in their
favor, without any possibility of correction by competing courts or
democratically elected legislators."
