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.

* These guys are probably the biggest patent trolls out there, and have been engaging in this nonsense for years now

* This is not the first time they have gone after an OS with this patent, Apple already paid up though

I know its not a popular opinion to have right now, but this is the thing these guys do. MAYBE MS jumped on the bandwagon and gave them money to go after redhat next, or something equally scummy. However, this is a patent litigation company, what they do is collect IP and then sue people over it.
