IBM's kunder er ikke brugere af hælersoftware



Jeg har sendt nedenstående til Berlingske og IBM.

Måske nogen kan bruge det som inspiration.

Subject: IBM's kunder er ikke brugere af hælersoftware

Hej Finn

Du har på 

http://www.berlingske.dk/it/artikel:aid=333910/

et indlæg hvor du blandt andet skriver

----------------
Det er netop det problem, tusindvis af danske virksomheder, der bruger den 
såkaldte gratissoftware Linux, står overfor. I virkeligheden risikerer de 
at blive slæbt i retten, fordi de benytter hælersoftware.

OGSÅ IBM-BRUGERE AF UNIX-styresystemet AIX - og dem er der flere 
hundredtusinde af i Danmark - har et problem: De bruger også 
hælersoftware.
----------------

Ovenstående er meget krænkende. Du har ingen som helst belæg for at skrive 
at f.eks. IBM's kunder er brugere af hælersoftware. 

Der er tale om at SCO har rettet en anklage imod IBM, som de foreløbigt
ikke har været i stand til at underbygge. I Tyskland har SCO allerede
modtaget en dom og er blevet pålagt en bod for at fremkomme med
uunderbyggede påstande, se. f.eks: 
http://www.idg.net/ic_1319957_4914_1-5050.html

Novell har hævdet at SCO slet ikke har retten til de dele de hævder at 
være krænket - det ser ud til at denne del skal afgøres i en selvstændig 
retssag, se f.eks.:
http://www.forbes.com/newswire/2003/06/06/rtr993533.html

IBM har afvist alle påstande om at de skulle have krænket nogen af SCO's 
rettigheder, se f.eks.:
http://www-916.ibm.com/press/prnews.nsf/jan/55A7C7C594DDED6785256D480048D624

IBM's holdning er så kort og præcis at jeg kan citere det hele her:
-----------
ARMONK, N.Y. -- June 16, 2003 -- Since filing a lawsuit against IBM, The 
SCO Group has made public statements and accusations about IBM's Unix 
license and about Linux in an apparent attempt to create fear, 
uncertainty, and doubt among IBM's customers and the open source 
community. 
 
 From the outset, IBM's position on this lawsuit has been unequivocal. 
IBM's Unix license is irrevocable, perpetual and fully paid up. It cannot 
be terminated. IBM will defend itself vigorously. This matter will be 
resolved in the normal legal process. 
 
 IBM will continue to ship, support and develop AIX, which represents 
years of IBM innovation, hundreds of millions of dollars of investment and 
many patents. As always, IBM will stand behind our products and our 
customers. 
-----------

Det er meget skuffende at skulle læse sådanne påstande i Berlingske 
Tidende. Hvis jeg var IBM ville jeg føle at jeg var blevet krænket.

Jeg ser frem til at Berlingske bringer et dementi.

Mads

Linux supports the notion of a command line or a shell for the same reason
that only children read books with only pictures in them. Language, be it
English or something else, is the only tool flexible enough to accomplish a
sufficiently broad range of tasks.
