Submission + - EC meeting designed to whitewash patents in standards (computerworlduk.com)

jrepin writes: "Simon Phipps spotted a meeting happening in Brussels that looked as if it was a set-up job. He suspected its goal was to ensure that a report was produced which could be referenced in future discussions over EU procurement policies — especially Britain's. While it was probably not a documented goal, such a report could be used to falsely demonstrate that technical standards with patents in them are no problem for open source software. Well, the report is out, and as Glyn Moody disclosed on December 31st, it's everything Simon predicted."
