This makes no sense.  The article says:

"We are making the NTRUEncrypt patents available under the Creative Commons
CC0 1.0 Universal License. By eliminating NTRUEncrypt patent hurdles, the
industry can speed the adoption of quantum-resistant encryption, ensuring
that the Internet remains secure long after the emergence of quantum
computers," explained Peter Samson, President of OnBoard Security.

>From the Creative Commons FAQ:

CC0 very clearly states that trademark and patent rights of the affirmer
are not affected – CC0’s sole reach is copyright and related and
neighboring rights, including database rights.
