(I-O Data Signs Linux Software Patent Agreement With Microsoft)

"... the company has entered into more than 600 agreements and continues
to develop programs that make it possible for customers, partners and
competitors to access its IP portfolio. The program was developed to
open access to MicrosoftÂ’s significant research and development
investments and its growing, broad patent and IP portfolio. In recent
years, Microsoft has entered into patent agreements with other leading
companies that use Linux for their embedded devices, including Brother
International Corp., Fuji Xerox Co. Ltd., Kyocera Mita Corp., LG
Electronics, Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. and TomTom International BV."
