EU Parliament bins software patent bill

From El Reg:

The European Parliament has voted by a massive majority to reject the software patents directive, formally known as the Directive on the Patentability of Computer Implemented Inventions. The vote to scrap the bill was passed by a margin of 648 votes to 14, with 18 abstentions.

Hooray! Thanks to the FFII and everyone involved for this!
