"Red Hat's latest attack on Microsoft comes on the heals of the
disclosure that the Open Invention Network (OIN) that Red Hat
supports, acquired 22 patents formerly held by Microsoft. For the
record, OIN was less than forthcoming with me, though they did
respond to me late yesterday and they did issue a press release at
4 PM yesterday as well.
"Red Hat blogged that the patents acquired by OIN were being
marketed by Microsoft to patent trolls."
