ES: Un futuro brillante Para El Nuevo Groklaw bajo la dirección de Mark Webbink (Actualizado)

Posted in Law, Novell, Patents, SCO at 2:58 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

[Actualización: Mark Webbink nos ha pedido aclarar que él ya no está asociado con Red Hat]

Excelente Nombramiento

Professor Webbink

(ODF | PDF | English/original)

Resumen: Groklaw 2.0 será administrado por el profesor Webbink, que está afiliado con el Software Freedom Law Center

Pamela Jones se retira después de 8 largos años en Groklaw y le damos las gracias por todo el trabajo duro[http://techrights.org/2011/05/14/gracias-a-groklaw/]. He aquí su último mensaje[http://www.groklaw.net/article.php?story=20110513165421803] (más probable) sobre SCO. Esto demuestra que incluso después de 8 años en la sala de SCO no ha muerto. Esta empresa es objetable aún contando los centavos y obtener un poco más que provienen de fuentes misteriosas. Pamela escribe:

Por lo tanto, vamos a ver. Eso es quince años, llevar a la …. wow. Blank Rome dice que se le debe un total de $ 652,612.55, si mis matemáticas son correctas, y que les gustaría ahora el 80% de las tasas y todos los gastos pagados, para un total de $ 523,695.85. Eso no es sin contar los proyectos de ley de Ocean Park. ¿Qué significa que SCO todavía dejó de pagar sus cuentas? Sólo Dios sabe, pero aquí están los últimos informes mensuales operativo SCO presentó a finales de febrero, cuando SCO Operaciones lista de 779.827 dólares en efectivo en el banco a finales de ese mes.

Estoy pensando después de la SCO paga Blank Rome y Ocean Park, lo que habrá de sobra para Yarro y LeapTide o cualquier otra persona? Sin todas las cifras, ¿quién puede decir, pero sospecho que esto podría explicar su repentina aparición en la escena. Estoy pensando que esto podría ser interesante.

Espere. ¿Quieres decir que … Yarro y la banda hizo todo esto para nada?

Esperamos poder interactuar con el profesor Webbink, cuya función será, aparentemente, para realizar un seguimiento de los casos de patentes y ofrecer un sólido análisis[http://www.groklaw.net/article.php?story=20110515173831922]. Para citar último mensaje de Pamela:

Así que pensé acerca de quién sería la persona adecuada. Ahora que el campo de batalla se ha desplazado SCO de atacando a Linux a Microsoft usando patentes en contra de ella y de los servidores a los móviles, me di cuenta de que Groklaw necesita un abogado en el timón. Así que le pedí a Mark Webbink si llevaría a cabo en este papel, y estoy encantado de decir que él ha aceptado. Él es el nuevo editor de Groklaw a partir de hoy. Mark era asesor general de Red Hat, como usted sabe, y él está en el tablero del Software Freedom Law Center. También es profesor de derecho, que lo voy a explicar es una pieza vital de lo que él ha planeado. Mark es un profesor visitante en la New York Law School, donde dirige el Centro de Innovaciones de Patentes, supervisa la Peer Para proyectar la patente se ejecutan con la Oficina de Patentes y Marcas de EE.UU., ha estado activo en la búsqueda de la reforma del sistema de patentes de EE.UU., y enseña de licencia de patentes . Además, Mark es un asociado principal conferencia en la Universidad de Duke Facultad de Derecho, donde enseña de propiedad intelectual (patentes, derechos de autor, marcas registradas y secretos comerciales) de concesión de licencias. Mark tiene acceso a los estudiantes de derecho en las facultades de derecho y muchos otros. Además, Mark se ha mantenido interesado e involucrado en el Software Libre y de Código Abierto y relacionado con cuestiones de propiedad intelectual y es autor del capítulo sobre el derecho tecnología de EE.UU. incluyó en un libro que pronto será puesto a dispisición del público, acerca de derecho del Software de Código Libre y Abierto.

¿Qué hay de SCO?

Profesor Webbink está en contra de las patentes de software[http://techrights.org/2007/10/21/webbink-software-patents-ip/] y no es amigo de Novell[http://techrights.org/2007/05/05/mark-webbink-on-trust-oracle-and-novell/]. Con el ya fallecido Novell subiendo algunos videos[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zayZDaISjvQ&feature=youtube_gdata] y OpenSUSE lanzando apenas posts[http://news.opensuse.org/2011/05/14/opensuse-weekly-news-issue-175-is-out/], queda por ver lo que realmente va a pasar en el caso SCO/Novell.

  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?

    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
