Within sight of its experiment testing in 2001, coupled to personal concern and doubts about possibiltié to revive the hope in policy, it decides not to make application form for the candidature for the presidential one of 2007. Within its current, it is then Yves Contassot which has its preference. But it is finally Cécile Duflot which is selected. He refuses to support it, because it militated for NOT with the referendum on the Treaty establishing a Constitution for Europe, and he regards the rejection of this text as a regression and a dead end.

In 2004 - 2005, it has taken, following the example Michel Rocard and of Daniel Cohn-Bendit, an active share in the sling against the constant patentability unlimited of the software for several years by the the European Patent Office. Whereas the the Council of the European Union and the European commission wish to legalize this practice by the European directive on the inventions implemented by computer, Alain Lipietz plays a part of binder between the claims of the small companies joined together within the Association for an infrastructure of free information and the partisans of the Free software on the one hand, and eurodéputés on the other hand. The July 6th 2005, the the European Parliament very clearly rejects the draft Directive in second reading, after having noted that the Conseil of the European Union had not held any account of its amendments voted during the first reading in September 2003 and aiming at framing the patentability of the software.

Affected by the rejection of the TCE, which brought in its eyes several answers to criticisms that he had formulated in his long political combat towards the preceding European treaties (combat led in the name of the political and federal Europe: to see his criticisms on the Single act, the Treated of Maastricht, the Treated of Amsterdam and the Treated of Nice), Alain Lipietz continues nevertheless to try to fish out some from them advanced threatened by the victory of NOT, in particular the European law over the Public service in the European Union envisaged by artice 122 of the TCE.
