InterTrust opens up on the MS lawsuit

Author: JT Smith

The Register: "InterTrust is a tricky one for your average freedom fighter. On the one hand, you'd
like to see Microsoft's OS monopoly broken, in which case InterTrust's lawsuit
against the company is probably A Good Thing. But on the other, you're against
companies who're patented up to the gunwhales using them to bludgeon rivals into
submission - so which way do you turn? Last week, InterTrust MetaTrust Utility
president Ed Fish talked to The Register, told us why his company was going to win
the lawsuit, why sometimes patents might be good for you, and why InterTrust
winning might even be good for Open Source."
