This is why I don't trust the EU

Stuff like this about the Software patents is just such a bloody stupid way to run a railroad. How can you trust anything or anyone that's blatantly bowing to big business by using obfuscation and weasel scheduling?

Last week, the group of MEPs responsible for legal affairs (JURI) voted to ask for a restart, which would effectively send the directive back to the beginning of its first reading. Their request needs approval, however, and guess what? That vote is taking place on the same day as the Council of Ministers' meeting.
