Canonical, the commercial sponsor of Ubuntu, has become an Open Invention Network (OIN) licensee, according to an OIN announcement today. According to the press release, the move provides Ubuntu users and developers with IP protection, protecting Canonical’s investments in Linux and helping to fuel economic growth.

Obviously we support OIN’s mission to spur innovation and protect Linux. Novell is an original member of and contributor to OIN, which was launched in November 2005. Patents owned by OIN are available royalty-free to any company, institution or individual that agrees not to assert its patents against the Linux System.
