Summary:
(Q) Are patents incompatible with open-source software? (A) No. For example, several patent holders have announced that they will license their patents to open-source software developers. Other vendors offer open-source software alongside patented software or service offerings. Suppliers and customers can choose on a case-by-case basis whether to use an open source business model or a proprietary business model, or a combination of both.
