Software Patent wars to resume?

Slashdot has an discussion about the discussion about software patents. Allthough it appeared that the battle against software patents had been won, it seems that a new attack is being prepared. This time the European Courts of law should be the vehicle that shoves us those unwanted patents down the throat.

Brussel is really out of control when even such on a much discussed subject the eurocrats can impose their will against the rest of us.

Drivers in the EU may have to use daytime lights

EUobserver reports that the EU Commission is considering rules to "harmonize" the daytime use of car lights.

I seems that no subject is unimportant enough that it doesn't arouse Brussels appetite for more power.
