New Microsoft-funded study finds developers don’t want GPL to cover patent deals by ZDNet's Mary Jo Foley -- Microsoft is expending an awful lot of time and energy to try to derail the General Public License. On May 22, the latest in a long line of Microsoft-funded open-source studies made its debut. The latest report found that open-source developers don't want the General Public License v3 to cover patent-protection deals like the one forged by Microsoft and Novell.
In short, the study is based off of 11% of their survey group (those who respondened).
Microsoft has their FUD machine cranked up.
