Hi all,

I encourage all of you in the UK, or British citizens abroad, to sign this 
official petition against software patents if you value free software. 
Please also pass it on to your friends.

http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/softwarepatents/

I also personally like these:

* http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/bandrm/ (ban DRM that stops you from ripping
   CDs and playing DVDs with free software)

* http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/Copyright-Terms/ (reject any motion to extend
   the duration of copyright term for sound recordings, as proposed by the
   USA, to 95 years).

Cheers, Chris.
