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).

"They're trying it out.


The REAL question is, is this 'pledge' legally binding? If not, I'd say it holds about as much weight as the neighborhood pedophile who promises to take good care of your children if you let him babysit for awhile.

Earlier in the week, orfanum equated Google with husbands who beat their wives; and you're now comparing them to child molesters? What, is there some kind of contest to see who can come with the most infantile & desperate-sounding condemnation of Google?
