+ - NetApp Threatens Sellers of Appliances Running ZFS->

Submitted by eldavojohn
eldavojohn (898314) writes "ZFS is licensed under the CDDL and is considered to be open source but NetApp is sending threatening legal letters to startups who look to offer ZFS on NAS appliances. This assault on Coraid has a few people worried about the future of ZFS as NetApp rears its ugly head yet again. The CEO of Coraid replied to NetApp's demands saying “We made the decision to suspend shipment after receiving a legal threat letter from NetApp Inc., suggesting that the open-source ZFS file system planned for inclusion with our EtherDrive Z-Series infringes NetApp patents.” Will NetApp effectively destroy any future ZFS might have enjoyed?"
