Microsoft seems to be attacking the competition through patents

Microsoft hates Linxu

We have already talked a lot about the amount of money that comes in Microsoft at the expense of the payment of pantentes. For example, it has made many more millions from patents for Android devices due to FAT, among others, than with its own platform or mobile operating system: Windows Mobile. We have also talked about some unethical practices in this regard, but now it seems that they have found a more direct relationship from Microsoft with these practices by making rumors no longer rumors ...

Microsoft is known to invest huge amounts of money in certain companies so that they are in charge of pressuring the competition through patents and thus ensuring a good position at the expense of these practices. The Techrights portal has been closely following these Microsoft practices and they have found it to demonstrate the relationship between Intellectual Ventures and Microsoft. They discovered that Microsoft was one of their main investors.

Your participation in these types of companies that charge for patents it is quite high, so they could supposedly be using these investments to stunt their competitors with the collection of patents, as this portal well reports. That amount of money invested is reverted in the form of sabotage to its rivals in the technology sector, as this close relationship between Intellectual Ventures and Microsoft shows.

And that not only affects Android, but also many other open source and free software projects, and many GNU / Linux systems. We will see if the separate "peace" between large companies such as Red Hat and Microsoft is still maintained or soon we see how the two software gypsies again sit face to face in court. Something that contrasts with the benefit that Microsoft is getting from Linux, as we know it has already used it for several of its projects ...

    Some time ago I said that this "love" of MIcromierda with linux was not real, that the best thing that could happen to Linux was to get as far away as possible from a usurious company.
    What I think is that the linux foundation was sweetened with ill-intentioned capital from microsoft by telling you all is well! while we work on how to make you ointment !.
    WHERE! the linux conspiranoids are there when they are needed!
