Summary:
Eben Moglen, Founding Director of the Software Freedom Law Center, today issued a statement regarding the Sun, NetApp patent lawsuit: "NetApp, in bringing this litigation, has announced that it wishes to prevent Sun from sharing ZFS with the community. This conduct is a misuse of questionable patents to prevent the spread of valuable technology. Using patent threats and litigation against free software and open source communities is an abuse of the public interest the law is supposed to serve."
