Patents, SCO & MS


| Comments (0) | Views (0)

Very good reading around the net today on the subject of software patents and the SCO/Microsoft attack on Linux... yes, it seems there is even more evidence to support a collaboration of sorts.

First stop Slashdot for a well-phrased synopsis of a letter of remarkable foresight written to the US Patents and Trademarks Office back in 1991.

This led me to the weblog of a paralegal whose research uncovered a connection between SCO and Microsoft. What's most interesting here is the venture capital group who is buying up SCO Group stock, and thus contributing to the stock's recent (possibly artificial) climb, is also the top holder of Drugstore.com -- of which Mrs. Bill Gates was just elected a director. Even the comments contained some worthy reading: an article at newsforge.com on the same topic.

A connection between SCO & MS has already been suggested by Open-source advocate Bruce Perens, though this recent 'evidence' suggests that any collaboration they may secretly have has the potential to backfire on Microsoft in cataclysmic proportion.
