I am not a lawyer. Maybe it is time to organize a class action lawsuit.  The
members of the class would be anybody who has ever GPL'd some software or
documentation.  The cause of action would be inappropriate (as described in
the GPL) appropriation of our intellectual property.  The damages would be
the loss of reputation resulting from reduced distribution of the
intellectual property.

> I like this part about patent rights:
> "As part of this agreement, Microsoft will provide a covenant not to
> assert its patent rights against customers who have purchased SUSE Linux
> Enterprise Server or other covered products from Novell, and Novell will
> provide an identical covenant to customers who have a licensed version of
> Windows or other covered products from Microsoft."
> To protect yourself from Microsoft buy a SUSE Linux license..
> I wonder if the developed technologies will be released as GPL, but in
> limited capacity..
