Companies get involved against software patents and the current proposal for a unitary patent
April offers to companies to publicly declare their opposition to software patents, by signing a resolution asking to the Committee on Legal Affairs of the European Parliament to amend the regulation on the unitary patent.
This resolution, along with the list of signatories, will be sent to Members of the European Parliament on Tuesday, September 13rd, 2012, a few days before the meeting of the Committee on Legal Affairs. The text has been submitted to some supporters of previous campaigns, and more than 400 firms have already signed it. Join them and forward the information, in order to remind our elective representatives that a clear framework, which would foster innovation with legal certainty, has to include a clear ban on software patents!
To sign the resolution, please contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org
The text of the resolution:
Companies can also contact MEPs directly to share their concerns regarding the unitary patent :
- Via email: the list of the MEPs members of the JURI Committee is available on the contact platform.
