Legal This week's 'big' news on OSNews was about software patents. You know, those things that say you cannot stack four pixels on top of one another unless you pay money to the guy who invented four-pixel-stacks (or the guy who bought the guy who invented four-pixel-stacks). A company called IP Innovation, LLC, has sued Novell and Red Hat for infringement of the company's IP portfolio. Software patents are of course generally completely ridiculous, so I will not focus on that here. I want to focus on something else.

So if anyone's innocent until proven guilty, why do we have to defend anyone? So far there have been only empty claims made - Microsoft hinted vaguely about some IP and Groklaw similarly dug something out of thin air. The bottom line is that Microsoft's fountain of bullshit must stop - they must either put up or shut up.
