''Red Hat Faces Patent Infringement Suit
Software company FireStar has filed suit against open source seller Red
Hat, alleging patent infringement. The suit, filed in the Eastern
District of Texas, asserts infringement of U.S. Patent No. 6,101,502
that is directed to a method of interfacing an object oriented software
application with a relational database.
Let's hope that goes nowhere, but it serves as a reminder that the
danger from a patent attack is real.
