Software patents discussion withdrawn from European Parliament

The discussion on the proposed software patents law before the European Parliament has been withdrawn. According to the Parliament Office in Ireland, “this happens when a directive is very controversial or when too many amendments are proposed”. I wonder if the controversy has anything to do with the public outcry over the proposed law organised by the FFII? I hope so; this is another example of how we can make a difference if we mobilise a little.
