An anonymous reader writes “‘Red Hat paid $US4.2 million to settle a patent infringement suit brought against it by FireStar Software, an intellectual property activist claims. Florian Mueller, who made a name for himself during the campaign to prevent the adoption of software patents in Europe some years ago, said he had dug up a court filing that showed the payment had been made.’ Mueller says the payment made by Red Hat was kept secret but news about it surfaced in another suit.”
