LXer: This week at LWN: A belated look at the Red Hat/Firestar patent settlement

Published at LXer:

On June 11, Red Hat announced that it had reached a settlement in the software patent lawsuit it was defending against Firestar Software, Inc. and DataTern, Inc. This settlement is of interest to the community; it may point toward how how such cases may go in the future. Unfortunately, the amount of information which has been released so far leaves as many questions as answers, including the fundamental question of whether this settlement is as good for the community as Red Hat is claiming.
