Following a chat I had last October with Keith Bergelt,CEO of the Open Invention Network, a collaborative enterprise whosegoal is to build a vibrant ecosystem around Linux, it’s noteworthy thatearlier this week, the organization released a program called Linux Defender to ward off what it calls “intellectual property trolls.”

It’s basically a set of development tools to let individuals andorganizations document open source creations, making them accessible topatent and trademark office examiners, thereby increasing the qualityof granted patents and reducing the number of poor quality patents.

Open Invention Network said that by not stifling innovation, the Linux community will be allowed to grow.
