LXer: Microsoft Gives Xandros Linux Users Patent Protection

Published at LXer:

Microsoft, shrugging off licensing moves to prevent it from repeating its controversial patent deal with Novell, has signed a set of broad collaboration agreements with Linux provider Xandros that include an intellectual property assurance under which Microsoft will provide patent covenants for Xandros customers.

What about the dates? All deals done after March 28 are not workable under GPLv3 final draft. There must be something that I am not seeing. But it all looks pretty clear. Unless this deal *was* done before March 28 and just announced now.



gpl, license, microsoft, novell, patents, xandros
