Mikael Pawlo writes: "As reported by Gnuheter, the The Open RTLinux Patent License is online as of today. The Open Patent License grants the right to use U.S. Patent No. 5,995,745 in GPL free software without payment of a royalty. This license protects GPL use of the RTLinux process. This could be an interesting turn, balancing the need for protection vis a vi the need for openness in commercial ventures.
