exFAT, Hyperledger, Hadoop, Android AOSP 10 and Robot OS are among the new software packages now included under the protective umbrella of the Linux System definition.
Durham, NC (October 13, 2020) – Open Invention Network (OIN), the largest patent non-aggression community in history, announced today that it has further reduced patent risk associated with core Linux and adjacent open source code through the measured expansion of the scope of its Linux System Definition. To keep pace with innovation and safeguard broad-based adoption of open source code, Open Invention Network periodically revises its Linux System coverage to include core code drawn from the growing number of important open source projects.
In the current Linux System definition update, OIN’s ever-expanding licensee community will benefit from patent risk mitigation associated with the use of core software packages drawn from Hyperledger, Apache Avro, Kafka, Spark, Hadoop, Automotive Grade Linux (AGL), Robot Operating System (ROS), KDE Frameworks, Android AOSP 10, Eclipse Paho and Mosquito, among others. Of particular note, OIN is incorporating the Linux implementations of exFAT into the scope of patent non-aggression by virtue of this update. In total, the expansion includes 520 new software components, bringing the total number of Linux System-protected packages to 3,393.
“Linux and open-source software proliferation accelerates the pace of innovation across industries as software becomes an increasingly important source of differentiation,” said Keith Bergelt, CEO of Open Invention Network. “This Linux System expansion enables OIN to keep pace with open source innovation, promoting patent non-aggression in the core. As open source grows, we will continue the measured expansion of the Linux System and, at the same time, recruit more companies into the OIN community to further mitigate patent risk associated with the use of core open-source code.”

Visa (NYSE:V) is going deeper into crypto it seems. Yesterday, a patent application by Visa was published on the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USTPO) website for a “digital fiat currency.”
Initially filed in November 2019, the document outlines the process Visa envisions to utilize “distributed ledger technology” [DLT] in the transfer of cash.
The document also states that in some embodiments, Hyperledger Fabric may be utilized to implement “various aspects” of the process. Hyperledger Fabric is a permissioned blockchain.
Visa was a founding member of the Libra Association in Switzerland. In October of 2019, Visa followed a host of other founding members and exited the Libra Association following an onslaught of criticism from regulatory and elected officials. A month later, Visa apparently filed to launch its own stablecoin.
As a payments rail, Visa has been scurrying to buttress its relevance in a fast-changing landscape of transfers and payments. Visa can handle over 65,000 transaction messages a second far faster than many off-the-rack blockchains. Yet, usurpers are seeking to challenge Visa with less costly, potentially more robust blockchain-based payments system. Pursuing a bespoke crypto service simply makes sense.
In January 2020, Visa signed an agreement to acquire the Fintech Plaid, a network that makes it easy for people to securely connect their financial accounts to the apps they use to manage their financial lives. Visa paid $4.9 billion in cash (plus an additional $400m for incidentals).

Here’s the architecture
Site 1 (Production Site)
Site 2 (DR Site)
Site 1 is replicating to Site 2.
We want the second site to be available to the clients if the first site is not. So how should the server priority list be setup? Should it be setup the opposite on site 2?
Is this correct?
From Site 1 SEPM
From site 2 SEPM
Site priority settings don’t replicate? If I setup site 2 it won’t overwrite to site 1?
Question: Citrix Policy – Does applying same policies on different priorities append the policy settings?
Answer: No, applying same policy however different settings in them will not append it, however, it will replace the policy altogether.
We have defined the following policy twice under different priority- “Directories to synchronize”:
One is set on priority 1 and the other is set to priority 2
The policy setting for priority 1 is: “AppDataRoamingMicrosoft”
The policy setting for priority 2 is: “AppDataRoamingCitrix”
So the two settings will not be appended.
The policy with the higher precedence will take over the lower priority.
And only 1 setting will be applied: “AppDataRoamingMicrosoft”
