CA opens patents to open source
Computer Associates International will give open-source projects access to 14 of its patents, the company said Wednesday as it also announced a technology cross-licensing deal with IBM. The U.S. patents, which include their equivalents in other countries, address a range of technologies, covering application development, data analytics and systems management. CA said it will provide royalty-free access to the patents and not assert claims against people who make use of them.
