Well one problem is that the statement is a bit vague...
"an adviser to a key MEP (Member of the European Parliament) told a private FFII mailing list that Red Hats deputy general counsel Mark Webbink lobbied him on the day before the decisive vote and tried, unsuccessfully, to prevent the rejection of the software patent directive by the parliament."
Who is the advisor
Who is the MEP
What exactly was said? was there a misunderstanding (mistranslation etc) about what was being asked?
If Mr Webbink did talk to this MEP, but there was a misunderstanding.. then the answer could be Yes, could be No, or could be Mu depending on what point of view you took from the conversation.
