EU Not Soft on Patents

Matt Sheffield reports: Software Patents Rejected by EU. (Hat tip to Dean Esmay.) If you’ve read the blog before you know what I think about patents. But this is pretty newsorthy, and, as Sheffield notes, has very interesting micro- and macroeconomic implications. Open source and file-sharing are two sides of the same coin. That doesn’t mean the answer to one is the answer to the other — that would be facile. But the issues are certainly related, and watching them unfold is actually more interesting than reading a patent application — which makes it similar to watching grass grow… but I repeat myself…
