Absolutely true, which is why it is _critical_ that OIN is not the _only_ line of defence against patents.
One shopuld also keep in mind that if Company A wishes to destroy open source product B, which is protectedby OIN, all company A has to do is spin of a new company C, which can then buy a patent related to B, and use this to crush B.
Even so, an organization like OIN is still a very powerful defence against most patent abuse.
