Exact Details Of Patent Deal Unknown

In an interesting turn in the Apple-Microsoft story, it seems that the partnership could be much chummier than originally thought. An anonymous source at Apple writes "...also, all patents for Microsoft and Apple will be owned by both for any new patents between now and five years from now."

Webintosh is still looking for confirmation and a definitive source to explain whether this refers to future joint projects, all joint projects, or possibly (and fairly unthinkably) every single patent involving either company. While Webintosh thinks the last option to be the least likely, we will be keeping a close eye on this possible development.
