crap. software patents now almost legal in EU (fwd)

This post by Justin Mason is a fwd of a mail announcing the startling news that software patents are now legal in the EU. *bam* There goes Free Software in Europe! (maybe..)
UPDATE! Justin posted a follow up stating that there’s another stage to go through before it’s law in the EU. Colm replied saying it was at the “committee” stage still, and asking people to get in touch with their MEPs to reject the upcoming law!
