[From FSFE] FSF Europe has responded to the latest decision of the EU council on software patents with an official statement, and analysis of the background to the new directive. According to Georg Greve, President of FSFE, the council's vote means that "Europe is about to finally give up on the goal of its heads of states and governments to become the 'most competitive knowledge-based region'". The full announcement is available from FSFEurope.org.
