Windows-To-Linux Migration Hits Speed Bump In Munich



"The issue was raised by Green Party Alderman Jens Muehlhaus, who
warned that patent issues could grind some of the city's departments
to a halt in the future. The issue involves a proposed directive on
software patents that is being considered by various European
governments, including Germany, France, and the U.K. 

“The threat is this: a patent owner could send a cease-and-desist
order against the City of Munich,” said Florian Mueller, a software
entrepreneur and spokesman for the Green Party there. Mueller noted
that the European patent situation is “a grey area” that should be
clarified. "

[...]

"Mueller said the software-patent landscape in Europe is murky, with
different countries and different political parties within those
countries voicing varying opinions and approaches to software patents.
In 1974, the European Patent Convention--an independent body--decided
that computer software and mathematical logic could not be patented,
Mueller said, adding that thousands of software programs have
nevertheless been patented using other approaches. "

Har erhvervsministeren tidligere svaret på, hvad patentdirektivet evt.
vil få af konsekvenser for evt. brug af OSS i offentligt regi
herhjemme ?

- ellers burde nogen spørge ham...

- han har vel ikke svaret, at det ingen betydning vil ha' ?
Ovenstående tyder i givet fald på at han har viderebragt
misinformation...

Med venlig hilsen,
Erik Lange
