This is "me tooism" by Microsoft, which clearly doesn't want to appear 
to be trying to annex any _more_ of the computer industry[1], whilst 
trying to prorouge democracy in the EU, by shoehorning a Patent 
Directive which allows for Patents on Pure Software and Business Methods.

The devil can site scripture for his own purposes etc..

[1] Would it be possible for Microsoft's monopoly to be any _more_ 
entrenched ? I guess it would be, but, it's difficult to imagine.
