In reply to: RMS discussed this at the GPLv3 launch

If you get a legally binding, written, perpetual, and irrevocable royalty free grant for any Free and Open Source Software to use a particular patent, then it is compatible with the GPL and legal in all jurisdictions. Anything less than such a written promise is probably not compatible with the GPL and feasible for Fedora.
