Our team at CIS India thanks you for opposing software patents in India by signing the petition. If you stay in Bangalore, we invite you to a meetup on the topic of Software Patents, this Saturday (Feb 6th). We will have a few subject matter experts amongst us too.

There will be Barcamp style discussions on Software Patents with the following interesting elements:

  • How do software patents affect entrepreneurs, particularly start-ups and SMEs.
  • Impact of software patents on open source.
  • What can we do about it.

Please send an email to "Amit Singh" [email protected] [email protected] with the subject line "Software Patents Meetup" to confirm your participation.

If you want to organise a similar meetup in your city, please write to "Pranesh Prakash" [email protected],

If you cannot make it for the event kindly continue to support the cause by referring your friends to http://petition.nosoftwarepatents.in.

We are targeting as many virtual supporters as can be, to sign the petition.
