Of course, another problem is that the amount of available art for software is so huge that I suspect OSDL will do little more than scratch the surface. In that case, the OSDL program will neither substantially strengthen nor substantially weaken patents, and will just serve as political window-dressing that will make real patent reform more difficult.
