"Anti-virus firm Trend Micro is suing Barracuda Networks over their use of
the open source anti-virus product ClamAV. The issue is Trend Micro's patent
on 'anti-virus detection on an SMTP or FTP gateway'. Companies like Symantec
and McAfee are already paying licensing fees to Trend Micro."

Just in case you missed it on Slashdot.
