There is now a dutch version (thanks to Simon Brouwer)
and Odile Benassy is working on French.
Moreover the en, de, pt versions have undergone updates.
We are still looking for a better graphic. It should be a graphic that
symbolically illustrates the problem of software patents, e.g. minefield,
puzzle with missing pieces, highway with road toll booths, rusty lock on a
math equation, I don't know what. Preferably pointing to unwanted
constellations rather than to bad politicians.
