It's not Sun. There's a small cash incentive to file, but it's not pushed
very hard. When you are preparing to file, the lawyers we've got are
simply amazing; they'll do most of the work, you just have to explain the
idea. 8-)

Sun Labs could be different though. They've got their own subculture.
Those I know there aren't patent-happy, but they could easily be (eg. gab).
