"When I first read a story that CPTN Holdings-a Microsoft-led group that also includes Apple, EMC, and Oracle–was no longer in the running to buy 882 of Novell's patents, I knew the story couldn't be right. Yes, the Open Source Initiative (OSI) had protested against the patent deal to the German Federal Cartel Office, but just because CPTN has withdrawn a filing to the Office didn't mean that CPTN was giving up on the deal. Far from it.
