Another patent broadside against Linux

Last week a new battle ship appeared in the horizon entering the fog of war surrounding Linux. The new ship bearing the name IP Innovation fired a surprise patent broadside against Novell and Red Hat claiming that their Linux distributions infringe an IP Innovation patent. Upon closer inspection the vessel was discovered to belong to the famed Acacia, known for firing massive broadsides with their patent cannons. Most renowned is the salvo of patent on internet streaming technologies. IP Innovation is by no means a novice to the battlefield, having engaged the mighty Apple in battle earlier this year. But have they stretched their troops and ships thin, will they loose the battle or will they prevail and succeed in bleeding the already battle hardend adversaries….time will show.
