Haven for plagiarism?

A recent article in expresses concern that Europe might become a haven for plagiarism.

One might have thought Harvard Law School was in the running for that moniker.

-->EICTA, the European IT and communications industry association, a group of some of the world's leading IT and telecommunications companies have warned that Europe could become a "haven for plagiarism" if the European Parliament fails to agree to allow patent protection for inventions implemented by computer.<--

The article also notes

-->The group warns that if members of Parliament (MEPs) insist on some of the amendments they requested when they were first asked their views on the directive, it would "seriously threaten research and development in Europe" and put thousands of highly skilled jobs at risk.<--

Gee, thousands of highly skilled jobs are already at risk to offshoring.
