CA gives patents to open source

Filed under
OSS

Computer Associates will give open-source projects access to 14 of its patents, the company said on Wednesday as it also announced a technology cross-licensing deal with IBM.

The US patents, which include their equivalents in other countries, address a range of technologies, covering application development, data analytics and systems management. CA said it will provide royalty-free access to the patents and not assert claims against people who make use of them.

CA said it is following IBM's lead, which earlier this year pledged 500 patents to open-source communities. CA also urged other technology companies to help create a "patent commons."
