Thank you, Poland!

The undersigned wish to express their sincere thanks to the Polish government for their action to remove the "A-item" of adopting the "Software Patent Directive" from the agenda of the Agricultural Council meeting on December 21, 2004.  It would have been a horrible mistake for the European Union to adopt this "Software
Patent Directive".
