The Linux Foundation and the the Software Freedom Law Center are co-sponsors of the Linux Defenders program.
Linux Defenders will compete with and complement work underway at the Electronic Freedom Foundation, the SourceForge open-source hosting Web site, and the Groklaw site. The latter site is active with messages and postings from open-source enthusiasts, many of whom have done extensive amateur research into cases like the ongoing SCO battle to prove that it owns Linux code.
Bergelt said said that even as OIN continues its primary mission of buying patents, it is also "directing invention" of Linux technologies by funding research at various universituies, including the University of Vermont.
