Google Glass as a means of monitoring by the NSA

donotlizard donotlizard writes  |  about a year ago

Geeknet Joins Open Invention Network

donotlizard donotlizard writes  |  more than 3 years ago

donotlizard (1260586) writes "If you had started to worry about patent sharks going after Linux and Open Source distribution sites, you will be interested to hear that Geeknet, which owns SourceForge, freshmeat,, ThinkGeek, and Slashdot, has just joined Open Invention Network as a licensee.
From the press release:
        "Geeknet is a leading resource for open source software development and distribution," said Scott Collison, Chief Product Officer of Geeknet. "We believe that by becoming an Open Invention Network licensee, we encourage further open source development and promote innovation in a technical community that benefits everyone."
Once again, we see OIN doing what it has set out to do, try to protect the Linux ecosystem. When you are swimming with sharks, it helps to be inside a protective cage, which is why you have seen a lot of folks joining recently, including Fluendo."
