Legal Large multinational software companies like Apple, Microsoft, and Google, rarely - if ever - initiate patent infringement lawsuits against other software companies, probably because they themselves infringe on lots of patents too. However, they do get sued themselves by smaller companies. Even though the Christian part of the world is all about forgiveness and love and pink ponies during the holidays (or, at least, they ought to be), Apple, Google, and Microsoft have been struck by a patent infringement lawsuit started by Cygnus Systems.

From a documentary I watched the name was from GNU open source arena.

I could be wrong, they are also Microsfot Gold Certified Partner as well.

I am afraid this could spell doom for this company and what their motives are for initiating this type of lawsuit.
