FFII press releases

We have three levels of news. The press releases, on this page, are the most important items, and you can be receiving them by email by subscribing at the news mailing list. The FFII news are more frequent and less important; we don't have an emailing service for them. The Software patent news (traditionally called Swpatcnino), are links to any page on the web that we come across and has any kind of software patent news, regardless whether it is written by us or not and whether we agree with what it says.
