The vote took place at the expected date.

Apparently it was rather positive from a eurolinux point of view.
Not all amendment we liked did pass, in particular it seems that 
amendment relative to force_of_nature => technical did not succeed.
Except for that most of the good did pass and most of the bad have been 

Now the trick is that whatever we win in CULT (last month) or ITRE (this 
month) still has to be voted in JURI. Then the amendment consolidated by 
JURI from CULT and ITRE will go to the Session for the first lecture in 
Parliament... then... still a long way to go.

We have a month or so to convince JURI MEP and 2 or 3 month to convince 
the 626 MEP (or at least those not member of CULT, ITRE and JURI). So if 
you were too late for ITRE, you can still do something for the other vote 
to come.

On the positive side, more and more MEP start to be aware of the risk of 
too broad or badly defined patentability limit.

As for the official report from ITRE, I guess next week the document 
will be publish on http://www.europarl.eu.int/
