I just got this email from Piia-Noora Kauppi, Conservative MEP and delegate in the JURI. Freely translated from Finnish, I'm unsure of what some of the things should be called in English, but most of you wouldn't know anyway:
[This committee she's in] (JURI) has today decided, based on article 55.1 in the bylaws, to ask for a new first reading of the [software patent directive]. The decision was supported by a strong majority and by all the significant political groups. Before deciding on it's position, the committee had discussed with [internal affairs] commissionaire McGreevy. During this discussion a majority of the MEP:s asked the Comission to withdraw it's proposal, so that the locked situation could be solved.
