Submission + - MSoft-backed Group Delay Patent Purchase (

ansak writes: After wondering what was the good of it all a few weeks ago, the latest over at groklaw points out that the purchase of Novell's 882 patents to a Microsoft-backed consortium is on hold, at least briefly. One commenter suggests an Ubuntu update that makes any user of Ubuntu an automatic member of OIN before the deadline (which will now go beyond the 19th of January, apparently), thus protecting at least those users from patent troubles.
