On December 21st, Polish undersecretary Wlodzimierz Marcinski courageously stood up to an undemocratic attempt to ram software patents through the EU by requesting they be taken off the list of "A-items" due to be quietly slipped through without debate by the EU Agricultural Council (!). Today, we're sadly surprised to find they're at it again: this time trying to slip the law through the Agriculture and Fishery meeting this Monday (January 24th).
