ErrorBase writes "Linux.com writes : Barracuda Networks is actively seeking the support of the free and open source software (FOSS) community in its battle against a patent suit brought against it by Trend Micro. The suit revolves around Barracuda's distribution of Clam Antivirus (ClamAV), the well-known FOSS security software, with its firewall and Web filter hardware appliances. Story ia also here and here.
Is it again a clear case of "If you can't win, then sue". Or is Barracuda pulling FOSS in the water for pure self interest.
There are already calls to Boycott Trend Micro, complete with fancy artwork."
