We have resolved our patent case with Rothschild Patent Imaging. We thank our pro-bono counsel - Shearman & Sterling LLP for representing us.

@gnome I have a really hard time in believing this:

> Leigh Rothschild said “I’m pleased that we have managed to settle this issue amicably. I have always supported the innovation of open source software and its developers and encourage its innovation and adoption.”

Rothshield is a known and famous Patent Troll. So Why is Gnome going along in this frame of painting Rothshield as the good guy, when he obviously is not?

@berkes @gnome On reddit, it says "The announcement is a mutually agreed text, and so I can't modify it I'm afraid."

If I may read between the lines, it is part of the settlement. As long as no harm was done, to open-source, great.
