Mark P. Wine was quoted in a May 15 article published by IDG News Service regarding Microsoft’s move to seek patent royalties from open source distributors and users in an attempt to use legal threats to deflect attention from company problems. Mr. Wine agreed that Microsoft is hoping companies will pay without a fight rather than engage them in a legal battle. He also said Microsoft may be trying to drive open source software users to migrate to its products. "I think it's as much a marketing move as anything else," he said. "If you're really serious, you sit down and have a discussion, and you tell [open-source users] which patents, or you sue them." This article appeared in MacWorld and Computer World.
