ES: Microsoft Todavía Abusa de su Plataforma Monopólica

Resumen: A pesar de todo la propaganda, Microsoft sigue atacando al pequeño, sobre todo con nuevos métodos como el concedido por el gobierno y USPTO-estampado monopolio.

Los que creen que el mítico “nuevo Microsoft” existe simplemente no están prestando atención. Pamela Jones de Groklaw recientemente escribió sobre defensa de la competencia/supervisión de Microsoft que vencen en el contexto de su extorsión de patentes[http://techrights.org/2011/05/05/attacking-the-market-with-swpats/]. Windows e Internet Explorer mientras tanto pierden su cuota de mercado, pero Microsoft está ocupada con las patentes de software como medio de atención en contra las plataformas de los competidores. ¿Cómo que no es abusivo? Es una distorsión del mercado. Irónicamente, dice IDG, “El Código Abierto frustó el caso antimonopolio contra Microsoft[http://www.computerworld.com/s/article/9216608/Open_source_foiled_Microsoft_antitrust_case]“, pero la afirmación no es convincente defendido en el artículo. Para citar una parte de ella:

Lo que se cernía sobre toda la sala del tribunal fue la enorme cuota de mercado de Microsoft en sistemas operativos de escritorio y aplicaciones de productividad, así como la disminución dramática del navegador web Netscape con la llegada de Internet Explorer.

Los economistas de Stanford, MIT y Berkeley presentaron escritos para asesorar al tribunal sobre los recursos, dando a Jackson los argumentos de una acción enérgica.

“El beneficio más importante para la sociedad que se creará con este remedio vendrá de una innovación más rápida”, escribió Paul Romer, profesor de economía en Stanford, en un breve de la corte acerca de una ruptura -de MS.

Para Jackson ordenó crear dos nuevas empresas y de gran alcance, uno para manejar el negocio del sistema operativo, y el otro, sus aplicaciones. Cada empresa tendría ingresos de más de $ 8 mil millones al año y las ganancias de más de $ 3 mil millones de dólares de 2000.

Huelga decir que Microsoft pichangueó el sistema legal y logró escaparse de la decisión de Jackson. Hemos escrito sobre esto antes[http://techrights.org/2009/06/15/2000-character-assassination-personal-attack/].

En general, la intervención del gobierno hasta ahora ha sido ineficaz. Microsoft sólo es necesario para mostrar algún tipo de compromiso mínimo para otras plataformas. Incluso que se está haciendo mal, porque, para usar este nuevo titular[http://www.computerworld.com/s/article/9216620/Microsoft_leaves_Mac_Office_users_in_the_lurch_says_researcher] , “Microsoft deja a los usuarios de Mac Office en estacados, dice la investigación” (no exactamente nuevas noticias, ¿verdad?)

Microsoft dijo ayer a los usuarios de Mac de Office no tiene aún una solución para un problema en PowerPoint que parchó para sus clientes de Windows.

“Las actualizaciones de seguridad para Microsoft Office 2004 para Mac, Microsoft Office 2008 para Mac, y Open XML File Format Converter para Mac están disponibles en este momento”, dijo la compañía MS11-036 boletín de seguridad. “Microsoft publicará actualizaciones para estos programas cuando se completa la prueba, para garantizar un alto grado de calidad para su liberación.”

MS11-036 forma parte de dos de mayo-día martes de parches, y cerró un par de agujeros sido calificado como “importante” en PowerPoint 2002, 2003 y 2007 en Windows. Sólo uno de los dos errores afecta a Office para Mac 2004 y Office para Mac 2008.

Las versiones más recientes, Office 2010 en Windows y Office para Mac 2011, no contienen la vulnerabilidad.

Esperar Microsoft se vuelva más y más viciosos dado que su deuda[http://techrights.org/wiki/index.php/Microsoft_-_Financials] crece. Sólo hay que ver lo que hizo Microsoft para OOXML[http://techrights.org/ooxml-abuse-index/] (abundancia de la corrupción). Microsoft no es sólo una empresa que está siendo demandado mucho por sus abusos, cada vez más, Microsoft ha demandado a otras empresas como parte de su modelo de negocio. El “nuevo Microsoft”, en caso de que este monstruo exista, es mucho peor de lo que ha sido. Los reguladores deberían iniciar una nueva acción antimonopolio en contra de la operación de chantaje llamada Microsoft Corporation[http://techrights.org/2011/04/27/bn-and-changing-the-patent-system/]. Ellos ya saben la dirección de su Don, que está ocupado invirtiendo sus miles de millones en impulsar las patentes y/o sus monopolios y la reescritura de su biografía (mediante la compra de la prensa).[http://techrights.org/wiki/index.php/Gates_Foundation_Critique]

“Esta cosa antimonopolio golpeará más. No hemos cambiado nuestras prácticas de negocios en absoluto.” -Bill Gates, 1995

    Links for the day



  2. Supreme Court of the UK, Which Habitually Throws Out European Patents, May Overturn Troublesome Unwired Planet v Huawei Decision

    A lot of European Patents are facing growing scrutiny from courts (Team UPC, including Bristows, publicly complains about it this month) and "greenwashing" of the Office won't be enough to paint/frame these patents as "ethical"



  3. German Federal Patent Court Curbs the Patent Maximalism of the EPO, Which Promotes Patents on Nature and/or Maths Every Single Day

    European courts are restraining the EPO, which has been trying to bypass or replace such courts (with the UPC); it certainly seems as though European Patents rapidly lose their legitimacy or much-needed presumption of validity



  4. Any 'Linux' Foundation Needs to Be Managed by Geeks, Not Politicians and PR People

    Linux bureaucracy has put profits way ahead of technical merits and this poses a growing threat or constitutes risk to the direction of the project, not to mention its ownership

  6. Code of Coercion

    Entryism is visible for all to see, but pointing it out is becoming a risky gambit because of the "be nice!" (or "be polite!") crowd, which shields the perpetrators of a slow and gradual corporate takeover



  7. António Campinos Would Not Refer to the EPO's Enlarged Board of Appeal If He Did Not Control the Outcomes

    António Campinos and his ilk aren’t interested in patent quality because his former ‘boss’, who publicly denied there were issues and vainly rejected patent quality concerns as illegitimate, is now controlled by him (reversal of roles) and many new appointees at the top are "yes men" (or women) of Campinos, former colleagues whom he bossed at EUIPO (as expected)

    Links for the day



  9. USPTO and EPO Both Slammed for Abandoning Patent Quality and Violating the Law/Caselaw in Order to Grant Illegitimate Patents on Life/Nature and Mathematics

    Mr. Iancu, the ‘American Battistelli’ (appointed owing to nepotism), mirrors the ‘Battistelli operandi’, which boils down to treating judges like they’re stooges and justices like an ignorable nuisance — all this in the name of litigation profits, which necessitate constant wars over illegitimate patents (it is expensive to prove their illegitimacy)

  13. The EPO's Use of Phrases Like “High-Quality Patent Services” Means They Know High-Quality European Patents Are 'Bygones'

    The EPO does a really poor job hiding the fact that its last remaining objective is to grant as many European Patents as possible (and as fast as possible), conveniently conflating quality with pace

  16. The Likes of Chartered Institute of Patent Attorneys (CIPA), Team Campinos and Team UPC Don't Represent Europe But Hurt Europe

    The abject disinterest in patent quality and patent validity (as judged by courts) threatens Europe but not to the detriment of those who are in the 'business' of suing and printing lots of worthless patents



  17. The Linux Foundation Needs to Change Course Before GNU/Linux (as a Free Operating System) is Dead

    The issues associated with the Linux Foundation are not entirely new; but Linux now incorporates so many restrictions and contains so many binary blobs that one begins to wonder what "Linux" even means



  18. Largest Patent Offices Try to Leave Courts in a State of Disarray to Enable the Granting of Fake Patents in the US and Europe

    Like a monarchy that effectively runs all branches of government the management of the EPO is trying to work around the judiciary; the same is increasingly happening (or at least attempted) in the United States

  21. Freedom is Not a Business and Those Who Make 'Business' by Giving it Away Deserve Naming

    Free software is being parceled and sold to private monopolisers; those who facilitate the process enrich themselves and pose a growing threat to freedom in general — a subject we intend to tackle in the near future



  22. Concluding the Linux Foundation (LF) “Putting the CON in Conference!” (Part 3)

    Conferences constructed or put together based on payments rather than merit pose a risk to the freedom of free software; we conclude our series about events set up by the largest of culprits, which profits from this erosion of freedom



  23. “Mention the War” (of Microsoft Against GNU/Linux)

    The GNU/Linux desktop (or laptops) seems to be languishing or deteriorating, making way for proprietary takeover in the form of Vista 10 and Chrome OS and “web apps” (surveillance); nobody seems too bothered — certainly not the Linux Foundation — by the fact that GNU/Linux itself is being relegated or demoted to a mere “app” on these surveillance platforms (WSL, Croûton and so on)



  24. The European Patent Office Does Not Care About the Law, Today's Management Constantly Attempts to Bypass the Law

    Many EPs (European Patents) are actually "IPs" (invalid patents); the EPO doesn't seem to care and it is again paying for corrupt scholars to toe the party line



  25. The US Supreme Court (SCOTUS) Once Again Pours Cold Water on Patent Maximalists

    Any hopes of a rebound or turnaround have just been shattered because a bizarre attack on the appeal process (misusing tribal immunity) fell on deaf ears and software patents definitely don't interest the highest court, which already deemed them invalid half a decade ago

    Links for the day



  28. GNU/Linux is Being Eaten Alive by Large Corporations With Their Agenda

    A sort of corporate takeover, or moneyed interests at the expense of our freedom, can be seen as a 'soft coup' whose eventual outcome would involve all or most servers in 'the cloud' (surveillance with patent tax as part of the rental fees) and almost no laptops/desktops which aren't remotely controlled (and limit what's run on them, using something like UEFI 'secure boot')



  29. Reader's Claim That Rules Similar to the Code of Conduct (CoC) Were 'Imposed' on LibrePlanet and the FSF

    Restrictions on speech are said to have been spread and reached some of the most liberal circles, according to a credible veteran who opposes illiberal censorship



  30. Corporate Media Will Never Cover the EPO's Violations of the Law With Respect to Patent Scope

    The greed-driven gold rush for patents has resulted in a large pool of European Patents that have no legitimacy and are nowadays associated with low legal certainty; the media isn't interested in covering such a monumental disaster that poses a threat to the whole of Europe
