The Open Invention Network is making good on its pledge to try to overturn the Linux-related patents that were contained in Microsoft’s recently settled litigation against TomTomNV.
OIN announced today that three patents in the lawsuit — including those the deal with the creation of long and short file names — have been named for prior art review on the Post-Issue Peer-to-Patent website linked to the Linux Defenders portal. The Peer-to-Patent is an initiative by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) that opens the patent examination process to public participation, according to Linux Defenders.
