    Trend Micro: Barracuda Suit Not About Open Source

    ,----[ Quote ]
    | Trend Micro may have received more than it bargained for in its software
    | patent dispute with rival Barracuda Networks. In the past few months
    | Barracuda's cause has been taken up by free software advocates, who see Trend
    | Micro's patent claims as a threat to the open-source ClamAV antivirus
    | project.
    |
    | [...]
    |
    | Chen: In the patent, we are not claiming that we invented the antivirus
    | scanner. We are not claiming that we invented the proxy server. But the
    | concept of using these two together so that you can stop the virus during the
    | transition is new. Like I said, I'm not a patent specialist, but at that time
    | it was awarded as a patent. And then later on even IBM themselves exchanged
    | their patent with us, and so there was some recognition of that as a valid
    | patent. And then later on it was litigated.
    |
    | Software patents are always very controversial. It's not about open source;
    | it's about how you define the patent.

    Trend Micro Says Their Patent Suit Isn't About Open Source

    ,----[ Quote ]
    | Eva Chen, CEO of Trend Micro, currently suing Barracuda over Trend's patent
    | on an anti-virus scanning gateway, was interviewed in PC World. She
    | says "It's not about Open Source", but she manages to sound rather short of a
    | clue in this interview, and makes a poor case for this sort of patent being
    | issued at all.

    Barracuda CEO Dean Drako explains why his company is publically fighting Trend
    Micro patent suit (video)

    ,----[ Quote ]
    | It's unusual for companies engaged in patent litigation to comment on how the
    | fight is going. But Barracuda Networks CEO Dean Drako has openly sought FOSS
    | community support for his company's defense again a Trend Micro lawsuit that,
    | while filed against his company, is really about ClamAV. We've written about
    | this before, as have others. In this video, however, we'll let Dean tell you
    | in his own words what's going on -- and why.

    | Eben Moglen of the Software Freedom Law Center is aware of the case, and is
    | considering a patent re-examination request or another intervention in the
    | case.
    |
    | Contacted by Linux.com, Barracuda's Drako acknowledged the array of reactions
    | by saying, "We at Barracuda want to extend our thanks to the tremendous
    | number of individuals who expressed support for our defending the use of
    | ClamAV free and open source software, as well as to the community members
    | that have submitted prior art."
    |
    | If Trend Micro hasn't already, it is about to find out that the case is about
    | free software after all.
