> patented e-commerce technology is enforceable in the US but not the EU, 
> US users could be breaking the law by accessing an EU Web site that 
> used the technology, according to Gartner. "If the amended directive 
> becomes law, the significant differences between the US and European 
> approaches to software patenting raise the prospect of a patent war," 
> the firm said in a statement.

> It also contains an FFII statement on the interoperability clause (from
