Robert Brown on the un-suability of OSS.

Dave Whitinger of Linux Today wrote in to tell me of an article claiming that Linux and OSS would be hard to sue. It points out that Microsoft's strategy was to copy others' inventions which makes it hard for them to complain if the OSS community does the same. The second part of the article is the stronger, introducing the idea that Windows as a platform is likely to lose many innovative third-party products now that Microsoft's trend of absorbing the good ideas of smaller companies is becoming clear.
