Fedora protection


Question???, Now that Redhat has said that it will give protection to it's users from IP, does that enclude Fedora??
I'm not sure If I'm posting this in the proper place.
LinuxQuestions is a little confusing as to Post what and where.

Hello Mickey,

This is as good as anywhere. To quote from the red hat website:

"Q: Has anything changed about Red Hat's Open Source Assurance program?

A: While customers have long purchased with confidence from Red Hat, Red Hat will now provide indemnification as an additional protection in its Open Source Assurance program.

whilst at:

http://www.redhat.com/rhel/details/assurance/

we have:

"The assurance program assures customers that if there is an intellectual property issue with Red Hat Enterprise Linux ("RHEL") or JBoss Enterprise Middleware Suite ("JEMS"), Red Hat will either (i) replace the infringing portion of the software, (ii) modify the software so that it becomes non-infringing, or (iii) obtain the rights necessary for a customer to continue its use of the software without interruption."

So No is the answer I would say. Happy Hacking!
