On his Computerworld UK blog, Simon Phipps writes
about the OSI and FSF teaming up to file a request [PDF]
to the US Department of Justice (DOJ) to investigate the CPTN patent purchase (i.e. the 882, now 861
, Novell patents). "Whatever the outcome of the matter, its importance has done a great service providing the OSI and the FSF with a first public opportunity to continue the positive relationship that has resulted in earlier private collaborations, such as when both organisations endorsed the formation of the Document Foundation. I strongly hope that both organisations will continue to explore ways to act collaboratively from their different perspectives of software freedom in the interests of the overlapping communities.
