European software patents have been ditched

I saw an interesting post on the UK Register site last night and made a note to talk about it here. Lucy Sherriff writes that the European parliament has voted by a massive majority to reject the software patents directive, the vote to get rid of the bill was 648 to 14 with 18 abstentions.
