[Parody] BN Announces Community Novell Review: Patents Cited in Future Mono-Targeted Litigations to be Placed on BN Defenders Wiki

Better before than after the act

MANCHESTER, UK — 04/28/09 — Boycott Novell (BN), a collaborative site that enables advocacy of Free software and an increasingly vibrant ecosystem around GNU/Linux, today announced that U.S. patents submarine #1, submarine #2 and submarine #3 will be placed for prior art review on the Wiki associated with BN Defenders. These patents will be cited in future litigations that target everyone but Novell, which bought protection for Mono until January 2012.

“These patents will be cited in future litigations that target everyone but Novell, which bought protection for Mono until January 2012.”BN’s mission includes encouraging the GNU/Linux community to destroy packages that may be suspect of Microsoft patents or riddled by questions regarding their real purpose. Accordingly, the patents used in future Mono patent action will be posted by BN for review and elimination of suspect packages by the GNU/Linux community.

“The patent vetting activity offered by the BN Wiki offers a unique opportunity to bring to bear the collective knowledge, passion and ingenuity of the GNU/Linux community to better explore the validity of the patents that are the subject of the future action against GNU/Linux,” said Geeko and a Red 'N', virtual effigies of BN. “We encourage active participation from the entire GNU/Linux community so that companies seeking to advance GNU/Linux strategies can be better informed about the dangers of Mono.”
