[ILUG] S/W patent letter

My conscience is rightly irking me in a big way with respect to the E.U.
and Ireland's position on software patents and my lack of involvement
in helping the cause against the potential new regulations.
As some of you know, I work in the Dept. of Computer Science in UCD and
I would like to rally the staff and post-graduates to take some e-mail
action. It's a large bunch (approx. 200) of people actually involved in
Now, a group e-mail asking everyone to send an e-mail usually has little
or no effect. I'm like to put together a PHP form simply asking for
name, e-mail and signature (i.e. position, etc) and "click the box next
to the MEP(s) you'd like to receive this e-mail".
I know Eoin Ryana and P. de Rossa have been mentioned as being
favourable in their response so I'd like to tailor a "keep it up"
e-mail to them. Any others of this helpful ilk?
For the others, I'd like to know if there are any draft texts out there
that would make a good base for an e-mail campaign targeting the 6PM
Any paragraphs, thoughts, links, etc will be gratefully received.
