http://gigaom.com

When patent troll Acacia sued Red Hat in 2007, it ended with a bang: Acacia’s patents were invalidated by the court, and all software developers, open-source or not, had one less legal risk to cope with. So, why is the outcome of Red Hat’s next tangle with Acacia being kept secret, and how is a Texas court helping to keep it that way?

Could Free Software Exist Without Copyright?

http://blogs.computerworlduk.com

GNU GPL actually *depends* on copyright, an intellectual monopoly, in order to spread intellectual freedom. Moreover, it seems to doom free software into a kind of symbiosis with copyright, forcing it to remain a supporter of that monopoly, since without it, the approach used to make the GPL so powerful would not work.

http://blogs.fsfe.org

When we get to explain our views in the plenary, we are after all speaking to 200-300 diplomats and specialist policy makers from around the world.

http://dot.kde.org
