"Here's the latest attempt, which takes the form of a
referral of a "point of law" concerning software patents by the
President of the European Patent Office (EPO) to the EPO "Enlarged
Board of Appeal", something that seems to happen quite rarely. Now,
you do not have to be a genius to see the problem with this;
essentially, the EPO is asking itself whether it wants to widen its
own jurisdiction, increase its power and boost its income by
allowing software patents. Unless the Enlarged Board of Appeal
consists entirely of self-denying, altruistic masochists, I think
we can all guess what the answer will be."
