Mozilla.org Spin-Off?

Wednesday December 16th, 1998

ZDNet posted an interesting article concerning Netscape's relation to Mozilla.org and the possibility of Netscape making Mozilla a non-profit organization.

The article states that it has been considered before, and could be a possibility in the future. The main reason behind spinning off Mozilla, would be legal protection if patented code was contributed, and Mozilla.org was then sued. Being non-profit, Mozilla.org would make no money, and be worth nothing, hence, nothing could be gained by suing them.
