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. Summits of Open Bear Traps: The Open Core Summit and Other 'Open' Events That Actually Attack Software Freedom

    Conferences that call themselves "open" something are sometimes nothing but an attack on openness (not to mention freedom) and promotion of FUD about Free/Open Source software (FOSS); there's an ample set of examples to that effect



  3. Openwashing Report: 'Open Source' Without Any or Most of the Benefits

    The cheapening of the term "Open Source" continues; sooner or later everything out there will be called "open" irrespective of what it really is



  4. Patent Extremism is Not Normal and Not an Innocent Mindset

    Reflection upon the sad state of the European patent system and how media turns a blind eye to it; worldwide, in general, the discussion about patents is being warped by the litigation giants, whose sole goal is to maximise the number of lawsuits/shakedowns (personal gain)

  7. IBM Cannot Become a True Friend of Free Software Because of Its Current Patent Policy

    IBM needs to quit bullying people/companies with software patents; that would help towards appeasement of IBM critics and sceptics



  8. When Patent 'Professionals' Sound Like Children Who Learned to Parrot Some Intentionally-Misleading Buzzwords, Myths and Lies

    With buzzwords like "AI" and misleading terms like "IP" the litigation zealots are trying to convince themselves (and the public) that software is a physical thing and a "property" which needs "protecting" from "theft"; it doesn't seem to bother these people that copyright law already covers software<



  9. The European Parliament Needs to Become More Outspoken About EPO Abuses

    There are few encouraging signs in Europe right now because the EPO's disregard for patent law (striving to just grant as many patents as possible) earned it much-needed backlash from the European Parliament

  11. Buying the Voices of 'Linux' People to Repeat Microsoft's Talking Points While Removing Our Icons and Leaders (Calling Them Sexist)

    The dirty games leveraged by several companies including Microsoft target charismatic people who are essential for morale and leadership; these tactics aren't particularly novel



  12. When the EPO Sees Itself as Above European Law, Grants Patents in Defiance of the EPC (Its Founding Document) and Violates Staff's Labour Rights/Protections (International Law)

    The absurd state of affairs at the EPO has reached the point where laws at every level are being violated and even judges are being threatened or vainly ignored; the EU is belatedly trying to tackle these issues, which have actually cost its credibility a great deal and threaten the perception of Rule of Law at multiple levels

  17. EPO is Not European

    Internationalists and patent trolls are those who stand to benefit from the 'globalisation' of low-quality and law-breaking patents such as patents on algorithms, nature and life itself; the EPO isn't equipped to serve its original goals anymore

  19. Storm Brewing in the European Patent Office After a Hot Summer

    Things aren't rosy in EPOnia (to say the least); in fact, things have been getting a lot worse lately, but the public wouldn't know judging by what media tells the public (almost nothing)

  24. Richard Stallman's Controversial Views Are Nothing New and They Distract From Bill Gates' Vastly Worse Role

    It's easier to attack Richard Stallman (RMS) using politics (than using his views on software) and media focus on Stallman's personal views on sexuality bears some resemblance to the push against Linus Torvalds, which leans largely on the false perception that he is sexist, rude and intolerant

  26. Openwashing Report on Open Networking Foundation (ONF): When Open Source Means Collaboration Among Giant Spying Companies

    Massive telecommunications oligopolies (telecoms) are being described as ethical and responsible by means of openwashing; they even have their own front groups for that obscene mischaracterisation and ONF is one of those



  27. 'Open Source' You Cannot Run Without Renting or 'Licensing' Windows From Microsoft

    When so-called ‘open source’ programs strictly require Vista 10 (or similar) to run, how open are they really and does that not redefine the nature of Open Source while betraying everything Free/libre software stands for?



  28. All About Control: Microsoft is Not Open Source But an Open Source Censor/Spy and GitHub/LinkedIn/Skype Are Its Proprietary Censorship/Surveillance Tools

    All the big companies which Microsoft bought in recent years are proprietary software and all of the company’s big products remain proprietary software; all that “Open Source” is to Microsoft is “something to control and censor“



  29. The Sad State of GNU/Linux News Sites

    The ‘media coup’ of corporate giants (that claim to be 'friends') means that history of GNU/Linux is being distorted and lied about; it also explains prevalent lies such as "Microsoft loves Linux" and denial of GNU/Free software



  30. EPO President Along With Bristows, Managing IP and Other Team UPC Boosters Are Lobbying for Software Patents in Clear and Direct Violation of the EPC

    A calm interpretation of the latest wave of lobbying from litigation professionals, i.e. people who profit when there are lots of patent disputes and even expensive lawsuits which may be totally frivolous (for example, based upon fake patents that aren't EPC-compliant)
