Google This. This is what we need. These are the kind of steps from which we all benefit. Google has just announced the Open Patent Non-Assertion Pledge: the company promises not to sue any users, distributors, or developers of open source products based on the patents it owns (unless first attacked).

IF you miltiply patents by POSSIBLE applications....

Than you get more of value from Google pledge!

Also they made it IMMORTAL.

Too many companies pledge some behaviour in regard to specific patents and then sell them to trolls with contracts that force such troll to even more agresive behaviour. (Case Study: Nokia..)
