GPLv3 on the Novell-Microsoft Patent Agreement
I thought it would be worthwhile to collect from the FSF's rationale document the explanations of Section 11 on patents in GPLv3 draft 3. That is the section that addresses the Novell-Microsoft patent agreement, particularly the fourth and fifth paragraphs. I think when you read it, you'll see the Novell trajectory. So, I will put first, Section 11 and then the explanation of what the section is trying to accomplish.
