I will paste in the first paragraph so that this article 
looks much less like 'buy me' spam.

	What is this?
	This petition aims to alert European authorities and
	policy-makers to the dangers of software patents, and particularly to
	the negative impact they will have on education. The use of
	Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) to support and
	enhance teaching and learning, including e-learning, is now recognised
	as a key element in providing education which meets the needs and
	abilities of students, and prepares Europe to participate
        creatively, technologically and economically on a global level.
