LXer: Samba: TomTom suit tries to undermine GPL

Published at LXer:

Microsoft is trying to prevent people using and distributing software under the GNU General Public License, a free software license, by forcing cross-patent licensing deals, according to Samba project leader Jeremy Allison. Allison told ZDNet UK that through lawsuits such as the one launched against TomTom, Microsoft was attempting to encourage licensing deals which are proscribed under the GPL.
