Subject Re: Google Patent on MapReduce
Date Tue, 19 Jan 2010 20:43:24 GMT
I have heard that Google generally get patents to protect themselves rather
than to enforce them. Google don't have any publicly available way to make
money off of map-reduce (even Google App Engine does not map-reduce
capability yet) so I would imagine they would be fine with Hadoop. Fingers
crossed.

Kind regards,
