EP committee postpones discussion of unitary patent

We have learned that the European Parliament’s Legal Affairs committee has taken the unitary patent off the agenda for its meeting today and tomorrow.

We expect that the discussion will take place later in the fall of this year. This means that there is more time for you to discuss software patents and the unitary patent with the MEPs on the Legal Affairs committee.

Of course, the issue of the unitary patent continues to evolve. Here and at fsfe.org, we will continue to provide updates on the situation as it evolves.

In the meantime, you can call the committee’s MEPs. You can also get your company to sign a declaration against software patents aimed at MEPs.
