Dear receiver of the FYEG General list.

This is the first issue of the FYEG newsletter, and the General list will
soon be turned into a receivers list of the newsletter. Discussions on
FYEG-related issues can of course be continued on various other
e-mail-lists, as well as on the web-forum, during the various activities,
exchanges and camps that FYEG is involved in, and so on. Hope you find the
information useful! At the end, there is information on how to stop
receiving this list.

The idea is that this newsletter will be sent out once every two weeks.

Greens/EFA welcome rejection of software patents

On the 6th of July the European Parliament rejected a directive on
