    EU software patent law faces axe

    The software patent bill has been thrown out
    The European Parliament has thrown out a bill that would have allowed software to be patented.
    Politicians unanimously rejected the bill and now it must go through another round of consultation if it is to have a chance of becoming law.

    During consultation the software patents bill could be substantially re-drafted or even scrapped.

    The bill was backed by some hi-tech firms, saying they needed protections it offered to make research worthwhile.
