No, its called making a deal.

Microsoft wanted to ensure their patents were protected... Novell wanted Windows and SUSE to be able to play nicely together.

You have to give and take.

Corporations, the people actually paying money, wanted such deals... so it was done.

No, it's called trying to claim exclusive rights to a public resouce. It's as if I put my own toll booth on the Brooklyn bridge, or charged you tuition to send your children to public school.

Caldera and Sun, both tried to pull the same scam. They tried to say that only *their* linux was legal. In both cases they said that just about the same time they got big money from msft.

It's not hard to figure out.
