The deal involving CPTN and Novell in which Novell was planning to sell to CPTN the rights, title and interest in 882 patents for 450 million dollars has come under intense scrutiny. CPTN holdings is a Microsoft organized venture of Apple Microsoft EMC and Oracle formed as a Limited Liability Company. But the voices being raised is because Novell was a contributor in the OIN (Open Invention Network) so these patents purchased by Microsoft corp. have raised questions for the developers about OINs protection. It was earlier reported that CPTN had withdrawn after a huge hue and cry that was created over the selling of patents including many open source software.
