(Red Hat clarifies stance on software patents)
And to back that up the company has issued a pledge not to defend
its patents against use in open source products. So long as the
terms of the GNU General Public License v2.0; IBM Public License
v1.0; Common Public License v0.5; Q Public License v1.0; or any
Red Hat open source license are followed, you're good to go.
