GNOME, the free software desktop has been hit by a patent troll. It's the first time a free software project has been hit by this, and we want to send a message to all patent trolls out there - we will fight your suit, and we will have your patent invalidated.


To do this, we need funds, and this is where you can help us. Please help support the GNOME Foundation in sending a message that patent trolls should never target free software.

In the US, your donation may be tax deductible. Any excess funds, should there be any, will be used exclusively for the purpose of bettering GNOME.
