Dear Susan and all,

I've read today some press statements
that NZ has finally banned software patents.

Reading the patent bill
computer programs are simply excluded from patentability, without any
loopholes as the famous "as such" clause.

So this is really big news!

Can you confirm that the bill has been adopted with the text linked above?
