FFII et al.
- This page describes both the organisation registered as "Foundation for a Free Information Infrastructure" (FFII) and the community identified by the press as FFII, thus "FFII et al."
FFII et al. was the most influential group in the EU software patents directive from 1999 until the directive's rejection in 2005. After the rejection of this directive, FFII continued to act as a watchdog and to de-construct the patent policy of the EU institutions such as the various proposals for a unified European patent jurisdiction (EPLA, UPLS, etc.).
FFII popularised The Patented Webshop.
