Summary:
We have also worked to build a patent portfolio. As we have explained many times, the purpose of this portfolio is defensive. This means that it is designed to discourage patent lawsuits by giving us the ability to retaliate against potential patent aggressors by asserting counterclaims as a defense. We believe it is important to have such a portfolio, because of the threats of companies that are hostile to FOSS and that have amassed large stockpiles of overbroad patents.
