To quote PHP.net:
In order to boost more awareness of the pending software patent issues in the European Union—MySQL, ISP 1&1, RedHat and other partners started a new portal “http://nosoftwarepatents.com”. The site is available in 10 different european languages and explains why software patents are bad, and how they might affect you. In order to learn more, or participate in events against software patents, have a look at the very informative website.
