Trend Micro patent claim provokes FOSS community, leads to boycott

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 70.5.9.42] on February 12, 2008 09:33 PM
A boycott is just BS. Trendmicro is NOT attacking FOSS, they're attacking another commercial entity who has infringed on their patent. Barracuda is trying to play the victim here and use PR as a weapon. They know how easily the FOSS community will jump to these wild conclusions and make loud but ultimately empty threats like this "boycott". If anything, I would boycott Barracuda for trying to abuse the FOSS community in this way.
