Apple, Microsoft, EMC, and Oracle have formed a new company to jointly purchase 882 patents from Novell, according to Foss Patents.

Three weeks ago I already commented on the recent announcement of Attachmate acquiring Novell and the sale of 882 Novell patents, in exchange for $450 million, to CPTN Holdings LLC.
