More Power to Open source developers From IBM; Patents and IP becomes Primary attributes of Open source game!

After IBM gave away 100's of patents to open source development community, suddenly patents and Intellectual Property becomes one of the key attributes for open source licensing domain.
A great move from IBM, after sitting on top of tons of open source projects, what a smart way to utilize one of the largest patent list under their umbrella.
It is true shared open source innovation, makes true senses when IP is respected and followed in a right direction.
That's why FSF(Free Software Foundation)/Richard Stallman working on GPL next version, one of the most prominent and popular license in whole open source community. This rewrite is focused more for Patent and IP.
