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).

Google has almost 20,000 patents and they are only willing to share 10?

Even super suer Microsoft did better with its patent pledge.

PR stunt. But Google lovers will fall for it. Of course if you step on any of the other 20,000 plus Google patents you are screwed! Lol.


Amen.
