European Patent Office staff on strike

It seems European Patent Office staff are so worried about the low quality of the patents being granted that they have gone on strike over the issue.

"Patent examiners and other staff of the European Patent Office (EPO) demonstrated outside the European Commission offices Thursday, demanding a thorough re-examination of the EPO."

Thanks to Glyn at ORG for the pointer, especially since I'm so buried in other things at the moment I haven't had the opportunity to sift through my newsreader.
