A year or so back I would say Florian Müller’s “FOSS Patents’ should be renamed ‘Patent Vs FOSS’ as the former would suggests he is standing up for FOSS on patents. Today I think it should be rename ‘How Patents Are going to crush FOSS’. Just goes to show you can never judge a blog by its title.
His writing for the past few years can never be called unbiased. As a commentator on patent issues, one would expect him to mature as he gather more and more experience on the topic. Unfortunately it is just going the other way round. His writing was never backed up by any solid analysis in the first place. Increasingly, his writing is getting worse as it is starting to defy common sense more and more. His coverage on Android issues will make even the most ardent Android opponent blush. Then came the revelation that he is working with Oracle now. Oh boy, that explains a lot.
