EU does not have problems with CPTN getting Novell patents

PCWorld includes text from a 17 Jan 2011 posting:

"The Commission is aware of the proposed acquisition by CPTN Holdings," states the message from European Commission Vice President Joaquin Almunia. "On the basis of the information currently available at this stage, it appears unlikely that the proposed transaction requires a notification to the Commission under the Merger Regulation."

"Furthermore, in addition to the consideration under the Merger Regulation, the Commission has currently no indication that the mere acquisition of the patents in question by CPTN Holdings would lead to an infringement of EU competition rules,"
