Financing for Ilisu Dam stopped

It is one of the most destructive mega projects which are presently being planned in Europe – the Ilisu dam in South East Turkey. It is supposed to dam up the River Tigris to generate electricity.

Cover blown on more than 100 lobbyists

Introduction of EU software patents blocked

Microsoft, IBM and co. had hoped the pan-European introduction of software patenting would help them extend their monopoly power and put free and open-source software such as Linux and Firefox on the defensive. Software patents would mean they would always be in danger of violating the arsenals of patents of the monopolists. Steep licence fees would be payable, which would put a real damper on innovation. For the general public, the consequence would be that software would become more expensive, less innovative and less secure.  Read more ►
