about the Trend Micro antivirus patent and a possible
open source victim. "In fact, ClamAV is a particularly interesting
problem, at least if Trend Micro decides to pursue it. ClamAV has become
somewhat popular among the 'roll your own gateway security' crowd, and I
think it's fair to say that ClamAV's main application is as an SMTP
proxy. I would be surprised to see Trend go after ClamAV itself, and the
ITC wouldn't be the place to do it, but I wouldn't be surprised to hear
that letters have been sent to some of the other commercial redistributors
of ClamAV, such as Apple.
