One quick question...
Bear in mind that the actions in question have been described as "unverifiable". The implication from that is that Mr Webbink doesn't actually know what the charges are! Do *YOU* know what has been alleged?
Yes Mr Webbink is a lawyer. But I'm not, and if I were in the position of not actually knowing what had been said, I'd be very unhappy at being put on the spot and asked to "deny the allegations".
It sounds to me very much as if Mr Webbink's correct response here should be "Mu - I can't deny what I don't know".
Also. Don't forget. Florian is in favour of software patents. He is an "ally of convenience", not a friend. He has every incentive to twist things to make Red Hat appear in favour of software patents...
