Summary:
Glyn Moody said: “Typically, patent trolls don’t have any products, so they are unlikely to be infringing on any of your patents. Isn’t that a problem for the OIN approach?” The reply from OIN was sincere: “Very clearly there’s not much we can do with regard to patent trolls.” We will hopefully have some more reassuring answers from the current CEO. One person suggested that we ask: “You said in an interview to LinuxJournal that “there is clearly not much we can do with regard to patent trolls”. You are also supporting high quality patents. Does OIN’s defensive approach work with a patent troll suing Linux with a portfolio of multiple high quality patents?” We are not alone in our skepticism of patent pools and ‘umbrellas’ of portfolios.
