Without taking a firm stand on the merits of the case, Groklaw is also stoking the fires, writing that the end result of all this needs to be the end of software patents, which are now proven to hamper innovation. "Groklaw will cover this litigation soup to nuts," they add.
Individual advocates are speaking up, of course. Florian Mueller, who agrees with Groklaw on the evil of software patents, is attacking the OIN. Bradley Kuhn says it's a black mark against both Java and Google, as well as software patents.
