Yes!!! EU Software Patent Law Defeated!!!

To all supporters of free and open source software in the world, REJOICE, REJOICE! Yesterday, the European Parliament rejected the passing of the controversial Software Patent Law, with a resounding 648-14 vote. This goes to prove that human ingenuity and innovation (in form of software) are precious, and nothing should hinder their growth (as is the case with a patent). I was so happy to read the great news on Distrowatch :D

MABUHAY ANG LIBRENG SOFTWARE!!! MABUHAY ANG OPEN SOURCE MOVEMENT!!! MABUHAY ANG LINUX!!!
