Hello,

The voting list is now on-line:
http://www.europarl.europa.eu/sed/doc/votingList/(A7-0001_2012).pdf

And here are the amendments:

Please propagate.

The first amendment to be voted (68rev) says the matter should be
"referred back to committee".

Openforum Europe (OFE) says "the EU should take more time to get it
right":

Poland is pulling out it seems:

It is very likely the Court will say, *on the day of the vote*, the
patent package is illegal:
