Red Hat upgrades its mission

,----[ Quote ]
| Red Hat has long been the big Kahuna in open-source software, but a new 
| mission statement points to an even bigger role for the company. 
| 
| Red Hat has long billed itself as "the defining technology company of the 
| 21st century (seeking) through (its) actions (to) strengthen the social 
| fabric by continually democratizing content and technology."

Red Hat VP explains software patent threat at Linux Expo

,----[ Quote ]
| Rob Tiller, Vice President and Assistant General Counsel at Red Hat,
| explained the need for patent reform and discussed the implications of the
| recent Bilski decision during a presentation on Saturday at the Southern
| Cailfornia Linux Expo (SCALE).
|
| The patent system, which was originally conceived as an instrument for
| promoting progress by encouraging disclosure of inventions, is poorly suited
| to accommodate the complexities of modern innovation. The Patent Office isn't
| equipped to process the rapidly growing volume of technical patent filings
| and the boundaries of patentability aren't drawn clearly enough to block
| excessively broad patents.
