Greetings,

http://yro.slashdot.org/story/12/07/03/1245200/used-software-can-be-sold-says-eu-court-of-justice?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+Slashdot%2Fslashdot+%28Slashdot%29

Discuss.

Also, does someone have time to examine the decision? We might want a
press release acclaiming the decision, as such a decision seems to
have strengthened the people's right to share software.


Cheers,

P.S. I hope all the recipients feel concerned about the decision, and
are the right people to consider the implications.
