Open Source Risk Management (OSRM) is an organisation set up in 2004 with the goal of building a fund to protect free software projects against patent litigation.

OSRM is now dispanded.


[edit] The patent study of the kernel Linux

OSRM launched with a study finding no patents infringed by the kernel Linux but finding 283 patents which had not yet been tested in court and which could be used as the basis for litigation against distributors of the kernel Linux.

60 of these were owned by IBM, 27 by Microsoft.[1] The study was carried out by Dan Ravicher.
