Asterisk open source company “not worried” about Microsoft patent heat

Ever since the “patent infringement” hissing and dissing match between Microsoft and the open source community flared up earlier this week, I’ve been wondering how Asterisk open source solution providers are looking at this issue.

True, none of the 236 open source patents Microsoft is claiming infringement upon directly relate to voice. But as Microsoft pursues voice solutions integrated with Microsoft’s Live Communications Server, it is a relevant question to ask if any of the branded Asterisk open source voice companies are starting to wonder if they may be targeted next.
