Legal Groklaw reports that a company called IP Innovation, LLC, has filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Novell and Red Hat. Groklaw goes into black helicopter mode, trying to find a tie between this IP Innovation thing and Microsoft - and it finds it too. A few ex-Microsoft employees now work at IP Innovation. Do with it as you please.

Is a man not entitled to the sweat of his brow?

'No!' says the man at MICRO$HAFT 'It belongs to us.'

'No!' says the man at Apple, 'It belongs to God.'

I rejected those answers; instead, I chose something different. I chose the impossible. I chose... LINUX, an operating system where the neckbeard would not fear the patent, where the Asberger would not be bound by petty usability...

Where the morbidly-obese would not be constrained by the able.

And with the sweat of your man-teats, LINUX can become your OS as well!

"No!" said the man at GNU. "It belongs to everyone."
