"In fact, SFLC says they believe they are invalid:

""The FAT filesystem patents on which Microsoft sued are now and have always been invalid patents in our professional opinion. SFLC remains committed to protecting the interests of our clients and the community. We will act forcefully to protect all users and developers of free software against further intimidation or interference from these patents."

"SFLC, working with the Open Invention Network and the Linux Foundation, is pleased to participate in a coordinated, carefully graduated response on behalf of all the community's members to ongoing anti-competitive Microsoft conduct. We believe in strength through unity, and we think our community's unity in the face of these threats has helped to bring about Microsoft's quick settlement on all issues with TomTom.

"What? You thought Microsoft's spin on things was always Gospel? This doesn't mean TomTom was the greatest with the mostest. But it means they colored within the lines. And now, stay tuned. It sounds like we all get to participate in "a coordinated, carefully graduated response ... to ongoing anti-competitive Microsoft conduct." Whoah. I'm in. You?"
