Toine Manders and Software Patents

--> [ Motion 2004-11 | Rothley | Bolkestein | NL | UK Libdems | Patent News ]

Toine Manders, "intellectual property expert" of the European Parliament's Liberal (ALDE/ELDR) group, member of the Bolkestein party (VVD) from the Netherlands, habitually sides with lobbies that favor stronger enforcement of the broadest possible "intellectual property" rights. When such a position becomes indefensible within the EP Liberal group, Manders tries to take an approach of rejecting it on procedural or other formalistic grounds.
