[News] [Rival] SCO Punished in Germany

Hash: SHA1

SCO Germany forced to pay fine

,----[ Quote ]
| According to a letter seen by heise online, 
| the German Federal Office of Justice last 
| week launched summary proceedings against The 
| SCO Group GmbH for "breaching regulations 
| pertaining to the publication of its 
| accounts." The proceedings were suspended 
| after the imposed fine was paid. No 
| information on the size of the fine is 
| available. According to the agency's website, 

| the fine can range from 2,500 euros to a 
| maximum of 25,000 euros.



Litigation Utah-Style - the Hatch-Jenson (Robbins) Connection - Updated

,----[ Quote ]
| The Pelican claims sounded, frankly, weird
| to me when I first read them, including
| claims of Darl McBride and Robert Brazell
| setting up a website to defame Robbins.
| What legitimate businessman would do
| something that stupid, I wondered? And
| yet, look what I just stumbled upon in the
| Deseret News. A criminal case settled last
| year in Utah involving Jenson. Hatch's
| firm represented Jenson in that matter,
| too, and he is individually named as
| participating in the matter in numerous
| media accounts. The case is every bit as
| weird as anything in Pelican, with
| accusations of fraud, racketeering,
| reputational attacks on witnesses, and
| political pressure.


SCO is getting smaller and smaller

,----[ Quote ]
| SCO is downsizing. Ch. 11 Trustee Edward
| Cahn has filed a motion for the sale,
| transfer or abandonment of certain de
| minimis assets. They have also signed a
| new lease with Canopy, and they hope the
| court will approve it. The new lease with
| Canopy is for space more than 50 percent
| smaller than where they've been. So, no
| more feet on that huge desk in Darl's
| office. Remember that picture? Ah, yes,
| 2004. The bogo accusations. I call them
| the Bogo Years.


SCO CEO likely will be forced out of job

,----[ Quote ]
| Darl McBride said Monday he regrets that he is being pushed out as CEO of The
| SCO Group software company but not his decision to sue IBM and Novell,
| lawsuits that led to the company's bankruptcy and ultimately his departure.



In His Own Words: McBride

,----[ Quote ]
| Suddenly, all the "fat lady" and "it ain't over till it's over" metaphors
| were trotted out. SCO isn't dead yet, look out Linux fans!
| With all due respect to my colleagues in the press: puh-leeze.
| First off, most people with a modicum of sense knew the litigation wasn't
| over. With bankruptcy proceedings and the SCO v. everybody cases... there was
| very little chance that this was all going to fade away into the abyss. At
| most, all of these legal proceedings will enough new cash to keep things
| going faster--provided the court approves the restucturing plan. Which, as
| far as I know, the court hasn't approved yet. The York Group reorganization
| proposal was nixed, you may recall.


SCO Tried to Gag Groklaw in 2004

,----[ Quote ]
| So SCO tried to gag Groklaw beginning in 2004. It moved on to
| false insinuations to journalists, ugly innuendo during a conference
| about me and Groklaw, having friendly journalists with PIs try to
| dig up dirt on me, a massive astroturfing campaign all over the
| internet, and then finally to intimidation with their recent motion.
| Well, I'm gagging, all right, but not in a good way, and certainly
| not in the way SCO hoped.
| I will respond like this, seriously for a moment. This is America.
| I am an American citizen. I was born here, born to certain rights
| as my birthright. I'm allowed to cover this litigation without
| being harassed and intimidated or threatened or gagged. I'm
| allowed to present facts that disprove SCO's public allegations.
| I am allowed to write what I believe is the truth, and I'm
| to present research about the allegations.
