Resumen: Nuevos ejemplos de las ilegítimas ofertas de Microsoft con las naciones africanas y árabes en su mayor parte.

Cuando no se puede jugar y ganar por las reglas, ¿qué más puedes hacer? Probablemente trampa. Hace unos días hemos recibido alguna respuesta fuertemente redactada de este post acerca de los grupos de presión de Microsoft [http://techrights.org/2011/01/02/microsoft-lobbying-figures/](hay más[http://techrights.org/2011/01/04/suzan-delbene-appointment/]). David escribió: “Yo sólo sé del comportamiento de la fuerza federal de ventas de Microsoft en el pasado y por lo tanto, considero cualquier persona que se encargó de ella, ser penalmente responsable. Pero creo que voy a tener que escribir un artículo sobre este tema.”

El post de hoy es una agregación de noticias de los últimos dos meses – de noticias que nos perdimos debido a que yo tenga un muy ocupado diciembre.

Nos gustaría empezar con las noticias de un sitio de “noticias” financiado por Bill Gates (más sobre esto más adelante), que dice que “la African Capacity Building Foundation y partner de Microsoft para construir la capacidad de las TIC para el Sector Público y la sociedad civil en África [http://allafrica.com/stories/201011152131.html]”

El African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF) y Microsoft se han reunido hoy para la formalización de un Memorando de Entendimiento (MOU) entre sus dos organizaciones. El objetivo del Memorando de Entendimiento es para las dos empresas a unirse a su formidable reputación y experiencia para ayudar a coordinar los diferentes programas de creación de capacidad en toda África.

Oh, sí. Otro memorando de entendimiento, que significa Memorando de Entendimiento. Para aquellos que quieren ver documentos filtrados que Microsoft explica la naturaleza depredadora de memorandos de entendimiento, comienza aquí [http://techrights.org/2009/01/14/ms-presentation-against-linux/]. Aquí hay otro comunicado de prensa [http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/skolkovo-fund-and-microsoft-sign-memorandum-of-understanding-106435058.html] titulado “Fondo de Skolkovo y Microsoft firman un Memorando de Entendimiento”.

Ahora bien, recordemos Microsoft en Jordania [http://techrights.org/wiki/index.php/Microsoft_in_Jordan] cuando nos acercamos a estas noticias del gobierno de Jordania [http://www.zawya.com/mobile/default.cfm/sidZAWYA20101128092940/actstory]. ¿Hubo una oferta? Feria de contratación? U ofertas bajo la mesa, como de costumbre?

Añada a Microsoft de presionar al gobierno de Qatar, con el Día Nacional de Qatar como una excusa [http://www.thepeninsulaqatar.com/qatar/134883-new-website-to-be-launched-for-qatar-national-day.html]. Este truco suena tan familiar. Para citar: “Los funcionarios del Consejo Nacional de la Celebración del Día del Comité Organizador, el Golfo y Microsoft de el Desarrollo Link, el proveedor líder de soluciones de TI en la región, anunciaron conjuntamente este durante la conferencia del Medio Oriente de SharePoint en el Hotel de la Cuatro Estaciones el domingo.” Esto es de esperar auto explicativo. Alojarse en esta misma región, recordemos las historias Kuwait [http://techrights.org/2010/05/14/nobody-needs-suse/] Linux [http://techrights.org/2010/05/13/kuwait-and-rht/]y cómo esta fue bloqueada por Microsoft [http://techrights.org/2010/01/28/partners-in-learning-deals/]. Añada un paso más [http://www.zawya.com/mobile/default.cfm/sidZAWYA20101209053758/actstory] en el descarrilamiento de autonomía digital de Kuwait:

Como demostración de su compromiso continuo a la mejora de la calidad de la educación y el fortalecimiento de la capacidad de aprendizaje de los estudiantes de la Universidad de Kuwait, a fin de ayudarles a ser más creativos y utilizar las últimas soluciones de TI, Microsoft Kuwait firmaron ayer un convenio con la universidad, que verá estudiantes KU ofrece tarifas especiales para su software de oficina, ‘Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010.

Microsoft está presionando el uso de eventos, esta vez en el Pakistán[http://www.thenews.com.pk/latest-news/4539.htm]. Para vergüenza. También hay adoctrinamiento nacional en Pakistán [http://tribune.com.pk/story/93465/hec-microsoft-enter-strategic-partnership/] (adoctrinamiento de Microsoft en detrimento del propio Estado):

ISLAMABAD: Comisión de Educación Superior (HEC) y Microsoft entró en una alianza estratégica en Pakistán centralizado para proporcionar servicios de TI a las universidades a través de Pakistán, según un comunicado de prensa emitido por la HEC.

Mira lo que Microsoft hace en los hospitales de Dubai[http://www.sify.com/news/microsoft-offers-health-products-for-dubai-hospitals-news-international-kkywafhjaii.html]. Para los no iniciados, Microsoft está bloqueando la adopción de software libre en Dubai [http://techrights.org/2009/11/09/new-deals-that-exclude-09/] mediante “Memorandos de Entendimiento” [http://techrights.org/2008/01/30/paris-dubai-microsoft-deal/] y en las escuelas de Delhi [http://informationweek.in/Cloud_Computing/10-12-20/Delhi_Public_School_chooses_Microsoft%E2%80%99s_cloud-based_e-mail_platform.aspx], entre otros lugares, tales como SUNY [http://news.cnet.com/8301-10805_3-20026312-75.html] (Universidad Estatal de Nueva York [http://www.ttkn.com/education/state-university-of-new-york-moves-to-microsoft%E2%80%99s-cloud-6725.html]) utiliza la Microsoft Live @ Edu estafa [http://techrights.org/2009/03/20/microsoft-live-edu-leaked/]. Se convierte a los estudiantes en vasallos Microsoft temprano en sus vidas. Este software no fiable se anuncia por la tristémente célebre Mary Jo Foley [http://www.zdnet.com/blog/microsoft/microsoft-to-add-new-features-to-liveedu-starting-in-february-2011/8246], a pesar de enormes problemas en Hotmail [http://techrights.org/2011/01/04/couple-of-days-without-mail/], por ejemplo. Para cualquier persona que elija Microsoft para el correo electrónico que probablemente requiere los sobornos ofrecidos a los funcionarios por el programa Live@Edu (que se filtró gracias a alguien de la India) o algunas ofertas de trastienda *. Hablando de eso, concéntremonos en lo que Wipro y Microsoft están haciendo [http://www.tradingmarkets.com/news/stock-alert/wit_wipro-wins-microsoft-platform-modernization-award-for-sales-for-2010-1306062.html] (Wipro servicios de Microsoft para obtener un premio[http://techrights.org/2010/06/21/wipro-nasscom-help-microsoft/]). Oh, bueno. Un día más en el mundo de compadrazgo de Microsoft.


Eduardo Landaveri, who is responsible for the Spanish portal of Techrights, adds to the above translation of his:

I feel very happy to belong to the Techrights Community & proud to be side by side with all of you who make Techrights possible. Thanks God for each one of you.

Why I do it? & I think the answer also applies to why you do it. The answer comes from RMS:

“Proprietary software is an injustice and we want to help you escape from it.”

–Richard Stallman

My regards to each one of you

The same quote in Spanish:

“El software propietario es una injusticia y nosotros queremos a ayudarte a escapar de el”

–Richard Stallman

We thank Eduardo Landaveri for translating the story and making the information available to more people.

* Se debe hacer hincapié en que Google no es mejor en lo que respecta a las universidades (que se plantea como una batalla “Microsoft vs Google”[http://www.searchenginejournal.com/microsoft-vs-google-the-university-war/26690/] y mucho falta en esta imagen simplificada), ya que todas las universidades deben ir con el software libre en cambio, ofrecer al personal y estudiantes la independencia de los ojos de espionaje de alguna empresa exterior.

    Links for the day



  2. Much Ado About Senators Tillis and Coons (Who Failed in 2017 and in 2018)

    The patent microcosm is attempting to buy laws that supersede the US Supreme Court (SCOTUS) and remove/weaken U.S.C. § 101 as well as PTAB while their blogs and sponsored 'articles' serve as lobbying vehicles



  3. European Patents Are Eventually Being Revoked. But at Great Expense to Everyone Except Law Firms.

    European Patent EP2724461 is revoked; but the cost of this chaos, which included an invalid embargo, could well be measured in billions, not millions



  4. Team Campinos Will Try to Make It Difficult to Go on Strike (But Won't Manage to Prevent It)

    The European Patent Office has a long and growing tradition of failing to respect staff's rights, including the right to go on strike (over violations of other rights of staff)

  6. Links 24/5/2019: PostgreSQL 12 Beta 1 and Rust 1.35 Released

    Links for the day



  7. EPO Strikes Further Diminish Chances of UPC Ever Materialising (in Any Shape or Form)

    The EPO crumbles under the weight of its own corruption while an increasingly-insane Team UPC pretends all remains normal and a patent trolls-friendly system is ready to take off



  8. EPO Allegedly Becoming Insolvent (Pretext for Cuts), So Staff Gets Punished While Management Takes the Jackpot

    The corporate 'logic' at the EPO follows the "shareholders' value" propaganda line as if the EPO is a private company looking to maximise revenue rather than serve the public



  9. EPO President Still Not Obeying Courts' Rulings

    Federation of International Civil Service Associations (FICSA) sent a message to António Campinos yesterday (the same day SUEPO publicly made a call for strike)



  10. António Campinos Has Run Out of Time and EPO Staff is Going on Strike (Skipping Mere Protests)

    European Patent Office strikes are to resume; as SUEPO recently put it, people have come to accept that EPO leadership has not really changed and none of the underlying issues is being tackled



  11. Links 23/5/2019: Elisa 0.4.0, OpenSUSE Leap 15.1 Released

    Links for the day



  13. Quality of Patents is Going Down the Drain and Courts Have Certainly Noticed

    Uncertainty or lack of confidence in the patent system has reached appalling levels because heads of patent offices are just striving to grant as many patents as possible, irrespective of the underlying law



  14. EUIPO and EPO Abuses Growingly Inseparable

    'Musical chairs' at CEIPI and the EPO/EUIPO (Battistelli, Archambeau, Campinos) as well as joint reports never fail to reveal the extent to which EPO abuses are spreading

  17. South Korea's Government Will Show If Microsoft Loves Linux or Just Attacks It Very Viciously Like It Did in Munich

    Microsoft's hatred of all things GNU/Linux is always put to the test when someone 'dares' use it outside Microsoft's control and cash cows (e.g. Azure and Vista 10/WSL); will Microsoft combat its longstanding urge to corrupt or oust officials with the courage to say "no" to Microsoft?

  19. The War on Patent Quality

    A look at the EPO's reluctance to admit errors and resistance to the EPC, which is its very founding document



  20. Watchtroll, Composed by Patent Trolls, Calls the American Patent System “Corrupt”

    Another very fine piece from Watchtroll comes from very fine patent trolls who cheer for Donald Trump as if he's the one who tackles corruption rather than spreading it



  21. Unified Patent Court Won't Happen Just Because the Litigation Microcosm Wants It

    Unified Patent Court (UPC) hopefuls are quote-mining and cherry-picking to manufacture the false impression that the UPC is just around the corner when in reality the UPC is pretty much dead (but not buried yet)

  23. Q2 Midterm Weather Forecast for EPOnia, Part 4: Happy Birthday to the Kötter Group?

    This year the Kötter Group commemorates the 85th anniversary of its existence. But is it really a cause for celebration or would a less self-congratulatory approach be more fitting? And does it create the risk that a routine tendering exercise at the EPO will turn into Operation Charlie Foxtrot?



  24. Links 16/5/2019: Cockpit 194, VMware Acquires Bitnami, Another Wine Announcement and Krita 4.2.0 Beta

    Links for the day



  25. The EPO's Key Function -- Like the UPC's Vision -- Has Virtually Collapsed

    The EPO no longer issues good patents and staff is extremely unhappy; but the Office tries to create an alternate (false) reality and issues intentionally misleading statements



  26. Stanford's NPE Litigation Database Makes a Nice Addition in the Fight Against Software Patent Trolls

    As the United States of America becomes less trolls- and software patents-friendly (often conflated with plaintiff (un)friendliness) it's important to have accurate data which documents the numbers and motivates better policy; The NPE (troll) Litigation Database is a move towards that and it's free to access/use



  27. Q2 Midterm Weather Forecast for EPOnia, Part 3: “Ein kritikwürdiges Unternehmen”

    A brief account of some further controversies in which the Kötter Group has been involved and its strained relations with German trade unions such as Verdi



  28. EPO Had a Leakage Problem and Privacy of Stakeholders Was Compromised, Affecting at Least 100 Cases

    The confidentiality principle was compromised at the EPO and stakeholders weren't told about it (there was a coverup)



  29. Links 15/5/2019: More Linux Patches and More Known Intel Bugs

    Links for the day



  30. False Hope for Patent Maximalists and Litigation Zealots

    Patent litigation predators in the United States, along with Team UPC in Europe, are trying to manufacture optimistic predictions; a quick and rather shallow critical analysis reveals their lies and distortions
