GNU, GPL, Open Source Friday Several kernel developers issued a position paper criticizing the GPLv3 drafts. That prompted Software Freedom Law Center chairman Eben Moglen to issue a 'renewed invitation' yesterday to kernel developers to participate in the GPLv3 process. Linus Torvalds responded to Moglen's statement by saying that his position on the license is clear and that he's "fed up" with the FSF.

"what are those risks? do you hold software patents?"

Yes, my company holds software patents. And before you jump on me for it, even Google holds software patents. The vast majority of companies that develop software hold software patents.
