Microsoft Makes 60,000 Patents Open-Source to Aid the Linux Community

Microsoft announced on Wednesday that the company is joining the Open Invention Network (OIN), a group that provides a licensing platform for Linux of an estimated 2,400 companies. Ranging from independent developers to mammoth corporations, the coalition is a collection of companies and individuals who have agreed to offer their patents for use by the “Linux System.” Microsoft’s involvement in the organization means that it will, as a member, need to keep its promise as a new inductee not to enforce patent lawsuits.
