ITWorldCanada: Mobile players hop on LiMo’s Linux trip

I was interviewed yesterday by Mari-Len De Guzman for an ITWorld Canada article on the LiMo Foundation.

One Canadian Linux expert, however, said the LiMo Foundation is not really an open source initiative, but merely provides cross licensing among members.

“In a lot of ways it’s like a patent pool, only it’s not really just about patents, it’s also copyrighted code and only members of the foundation will have access to this, not the public,” noted Russell McOrmond, policy coordinator at Canadian open source advocacy group CLUE.
