Please take the following into consideration when voting for your EU member of parliament:
One of the few members of the EU parliament active PRO software patents, so AGAINST your interests was Marianne Thyssen (CD&V).
At the time, Bart Staes (Groen!), Dirk Sterckx(OpenVLD), Sp.a and NVA díd do a good job. Merde, even Vlaams Belang (friends know how hard this is for me to acknowledge) has supported Flemish SMEs on this issue.
The sources of this information? Direct experience talking to members of the EU parliament, and first hand reporting by friends even closer to the case.
