What is this?
This petition aims to alert European authorities and
policy-makers to the dangers of software patents, and particularly to

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.
