Zemlin on Microsoft/TomTom

Jim Zemlin, executive director of the Linux Foundation, on Microsoft's allegations of patent infringement against TomTom: "Unfortunately, claims like these are a byproduct of our business and legal system today." IPBiz notes that here Microsoft is in the role of patent asserter.

Although Zemlin characterized this as "a private dispute" between Microsoft and TomTom, it could well be a trial run for later patent assertion strategy.
