"Power backs deletion of software patents
Minister plans to back Commerce Select Committee recommendation
By Tom Pullar-Strecker | The Dominion Post | Monday, 12 April, 2010 | 4

proposed by a select committee that will mean computer software can no

Parliament's commerce select committee proposed amending the Patents 
Bill, which passed its first reading in May last year, after receiving 
many submissions on the controversial issue."
