March 7th: Investigating and Commemorating "Banana Union Day"

-> [ deutsch ] [ Adoption Farce | 23 Questions | Lawyer Interview | Protest | Conference | EU Democracy | mailing list | projects | patent news ]


On 7th March 2005 the Council of the EU claimed to have adopted a "Common Position" on the software patents directive. However this was only a minority position of the most pro-patent forces, and it is unclear whether and how it was adopted. Specific questions asked by FFII have been left unanswered. We need to obtain further expertise and clarification. Given the nefarious precedent which it creates, March 7th should be worthy for commemoration as "Banana Union Day".
