LXer: Petition the UK Government to protect GPL software

Published at LXer:

A petition that has been created is "essentially proposing that GPL v3 software in the UK be granted immunity from patent infringement - therefore requiring an alteration of the Copyright, Designs and Patents act. The petition will run until 10 November 2007 and can be signed by persons who hold British citizenships, or by persons residing in the UK."
