TomTom, Microsoft settle

Microsoft is compromising

Microsoft is compromising its existence as a 'standard'. Now, let's see if they can be pressured to support free FSs.

Settled, But Not Over Yet

softwarefreedom.org: Today's settlement between Microsoft and TomTom ends one phase of the community's response to Microsoft patent aggression, and begins another. On the basis of the information we have, we have no reason to believe that TomTom's settlement agreement with Microsoft violates the license on the kernel, Linux, or any other free software used in its products. The settlement neither implies that Microsoft patents are valid nor that TomTom's products were or are infringing.
