"Plan for the Worst

The Linux Foundation is working closely with our partner the Open
Invention Network, and our members, and is well prepared for any
claims against Linux. We have great confidence in the foundation
they have laid. Unfortunately, claims like these are a by-product of
our business and legal system today. For now, we are closely
watching the situation and will remain ready to mount a Linux’s
defense, should the need arise."
