Outstanding Contribution to Software Development

Winner: NoSoftwarePatents.com & The Foundation for a Free
Information Infrastructure (FFII)

NoSoftwarePatents.com and the FFII joined forces last year to
campaign against the European software patent directive, which
many feared would open the doors to an increasingly litigious
marketplace in which small businesses would struggle to survive.
In July this year, the European Parliament unexpectedly rejected
the directive, a victory which can be attributed to the tireless
work of this alliance.
