Be careful with the LibDems. They officially have a policy against swpat (I know --- I
contributed to the internal debate which produced said policy) but the party's MEPs don't get
it. Sure they use the right rhetoric, they make it sound like they hear concerns about swpat.
But their rhetoric was not matched by their voting record. They voted mostly against
amendments limiting patentability and in favour of bad amendments. The LibDem MEP in
charge of this issue is Diana Wallis, who still needs hitting with cluesticks.
