MQX MFS - Long File Names and Microsoft Patents

Question asked by Hugh Worrall on Aug 29, 2016

The MQX File System (MFS) is compatible with the MS-DOS file system. The MFS supports the DOS long file names. Microsoft registered a patent for the long file name conversion method in 1993 and 1996 (patent 517 & 352). Does the MQX MFS infringe Microsoft's patents for long file names and if so can long file names be turned off in the MFS?

Regards,

Hugh
