Confirm comment report request

Don't just sign petitions! Contact your MEPs and express your own views! You may want to respond with counter-arguments if they ignore your views and parrot red herring arguments about "economic competitiveness", offshoring and the usual distracting "arguments" about why software patents are supposedly good things (albeit to various vested lobbying interests).

If your professional life depends on software development, you may wish to consider the effects patents may have on your career, especially if you aren't either planning to work for a huge company with a huge patent portfolio for the rest of your life, or hoping that your start-up can make cash out of suing large companies over dodgy patents.
