SCO Uses 3rd Parties To Spread Claims In Germany
Caldera
Linux Business
The Courts
Posted by timothy on Tue Mar 30, '04 09:08 PM
from the sand-filled-balloon-in-oil-is-traditional dept.
kryonD writes "According to this Computer Weekly article, SCO is no longer allowed to spread their FUD in Germany. This wasn't even a court or government order, but an out of court settlement with a small company. They even get 'fined' EU10,000 by the company for every breach of the settlement. Although, it appears from the article that SCO is side-stepping the agreement by commissioning 3rd party firms to spread their FUD for them. The settlement happened last month, but this is the first I have heard of it. I wonder what made them back down so quickly." We mentioned the settlement earlier this month (including prohibitions on making certain claims); the news is the attempt to circumvent it.
