Still, I find it hard to see how the excemption can be done in accordance
with EUCD in the first place. Anyway, it is great that Norway is attempting
a balanced path, since the Swedish take on the subject is due in late May

intellectual property issues.

Please let me (and the list) know when the EFN analysis is posted on the
web site. I am sure a lot of people will be interested in it.
