Thought this story may interest/worry a few of the devs here.

I've been campaigning against EU directives for the patenting of 
"computer implemented inventions" for some time and was involved in a 
DTI meeting recently and will hopefully be involved in a working group 
in the not too distant future.

"The satellite group BSkyB has patented new technology that allows 
television viewers to record favourite programmes without any ad breaks."
