Copenhagen, 23rd of January 2004 -- Jacob Buksti, spokesman on european affairs of the social democratic party in the Danish Parliament, has sent a letter to Denmark's foreign minister asking the government to call for renegotiation of the software patent directive in the Council. If the government supports the present course of adopting the draft as an A-item, the social demoracts "can not support the government", according to the letter. If the call is followed, there must be a new vote on the directive, and the lack of a qualified majority will become apparent.
