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 were the ones who squatted on the floor and created that pile in the first place, so why shouldn't they wallow in it?
