Submitted by

annodomini writes "The SEC has posted the terms (with a few bits omitted for confidentiality) of therecent agreements between Microsoft and Novell, which have sparked so much debate in the Linux community and even led to changes in the GPLv3 drafting process. The three parts of the agreement are the Patent Cooperation Agreement, the Technical Collaboration Agreement, and the Business Collaboration Agreement. There are all sorts of interesting tidbits in here, like exceptions to a patent release for things like Wine, and all but calling OpenOffice a "clone" of Microsoft Office."
