In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year. For me, it is all of those things plus a time when I u...

Quote of the Week

"The GPL violates the US Constitution, together with copyright, antitrust and export control laws."

[SCO Group answer filed 24 October, 2003 in response to an IBM court filing]

 

"This is the kitchen-sink kind of response. This is dumping everything with the kitchen sink. This is throw everything at the wall and see what sticks. I'm sure they [SCO] did sufficient research to raise those defenses - they're not woefully inappropriate. But some of them appear to be a stretch. It's. . .unusual to see these sorts of defenses under the facts in this case."

Jeff Berkowitz, Partner, Finnegan Henderson, October 28, 2003
[talking to TechNewsWorld]

 

"It's just rubbish. There's nothing about giving permission to copy, modify or redistribute that violates the US Constitution or any other law of the United States."

Eben Moglen, attorney and Columbia Law School professor
[Talking to Silicon.com]

 

"The language of the GPL is opaque and it has many ambiguities: it does not establish a governing law, the scope of 'derivative works' that are governed by the GPL is unclear and the legal effect of the FAQ (which are not part of the license itself) is uncertain. The open-source industry has more at stake than just a possible infringement of SCO’s rights by certain parts of Linux: the court’s ruling on the enforceability and terms of the GPL will determine the viability of the open-source model."

Mark F. Radcliffe, senior partner, Gray Cary Ware & Freidenrich

 


"GNU will remove operating system software from the realm of competition. You will not be able to get an edge in this area, but neither will your competitors be able to get an edge over you. You and they will compete in other areas, while benefiting mutually in this one.

If your business is selling an operating system, you will not like GNU, but that's tough on you. If your business is something else, GNU can save you from being pushed into the expensive business of selling operating systems.

The same principles apply to non-OS GPL software, although the original concept was just to create a replacement for Unix."

Quote from the GNU Manifesto

 

"The only difference between [GPL] licenses and those used by everyone else is that they ask for cash; we ask for some rights regarding derived works. What we have here . . . isn't really a serious legal filing. It's just an attempt to delay the inevitable day that the case gets thrown out of court."

Bruce Perenstalking to The Salt Lake Tribune, 23 October 2003

Hope the Open Source Group has good lawyers. Hate to have the thing decided on legal technicality rather than the merits of the GPL.
