Actually, the impact of this isn't immediately obvious to me.
Holdings companies don't do development, so we're not talking about copyright and probably not trademarks. US$450 million is a reasonable sum, and first paragraph mention in the press release suggests that these are serious assets.
Could it be something to do with removing Novell patents from the OIN pool?
