These wankers make my blood boil:

"In the absence of guidance from the law and its preparatory documents, and in view of the existence of divergences of opinion regarding how the computer program exclusion should be applied, it is considered appropriate at this stage to refer the questions set out in the previous section to the Enlarged Board of Appeal for its opinion"

There is no fucking absence. At all. Article 52 of the EPC quite clearly states that computer programs as such are not patentable. The pro swpat lobby have been using dishonest and diversionary tactics like this for years now. Someone needs to stamp on them.
