Linux It's strange. Microsoft has been patent trolling the heck out of the Linux kernel for a long time now, and is still using these patents against Android today in its protection money scheme. However, as LWN.net illustrates, Microsoft makes quite a few contributions to the Linux kernel. Shouldn't this invalidate their patent claims?

Thom also implied that logic should have something to do with the law - and of course it doesn't. Lawyers and the legal system (at least in the US) are all about argument. Argument is all about who can best appeal to the confirmation bias of the Jury and Judge.

Logic has got absolutely nothing at all to do with it.
