Floarian Mueller to give up software patent fight 2005-03-30

From ZDNet UK: Anti-patent campaigner hangs up his gloves

Florian Mueller has been a tireless campaigner over the last year, and together with the people at FFII he's managed to create enough difficulties for the pro-patent lobby that the directive would have been dead if the EU Presidency had stuck to the EU Council's procedures instead of going to extreme lenghts to quelsh any democratic legitimacy the council had.

We all owe him a great deal of thanks for the work he's put in, and I hope his game project is a great success.

In the meantime, we still have the FFII, it's still possible to kill this directive, or even fix it.
