Raymond on SCO

2003-08-27 18:47:29.891449+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

Charlene's venture has had her delving into law and talking to IP lawyers recently. And it's been slightly confusing, she's been getting different answers from different people, making it clear that, yes, "the law" is some sort of group hallucination, and frankly some of those interpreting it are on some wacky shit. While Charlene is struggling over the fine points of trademarks versus service marks versus registered trademarks, Abercrombie & Fitch is claiming trademark status on "22", despite the fact that they've never registered it. Based on what little I know, I can't imagine that that'll hold up, but.... yeah...

So while we're talking about lawyers on crack, Eric Raymond examines the details of the SCO complaint against IBM.
