CA also announced it has reached a long-term, patent cross license agreement with IBM, creating an exchange of license rights and releases between the companies.In making its patent pledge to the open source community, CA is joining IBM in encouraging other companies to create an industry-wide "patent commons" in which patents are pledged royalty-free to further innovation in areas of broad interest to developers and users of information technology.
