1399969 story Red Hat Files for Software Patents 323 Posted by michael on Friday May 24, 2002 @08:39PM from the patent-applied-for dept. Marsala writes "Apparently Red Hat has filed two patent applications for stuff related to the TUX webserver. The patents are for Embedded Protocol Objects and Method and apparatus for atomic file look-up. One has to wonder (if their patents are granted) what their licensing terms will be.... free for open source, or a tool to try and screw other Linux distros?" As reported by Linux Weekly News.
