Jul 06, 2009, 14:32 (9 Talkback[s])

[ Thanks to Patent Sleuth for this link. ]

"Microsoft claims that Linux infringes some 200 patents. In http://linuxpatents.blogspot.com we will be going through the Microsoft patent portfolio, identifying the patents that Linux infringes and work to find prior art, create patches to remove the infringing code and raise awareness of the problems with users.

"With good luck, in 200 days or a year we will have removed all patent infringing code from Linux.

"The project introduction and the first patent are up at http://linuxpatents.blogspot.com"
