Ubersoft's Help Desk ... A reorganization plan for SCO
Tuesday, October 28 2008 @ 10:37 PM EDT

All right. We can't be serious about SCO all the time. Time for a laugh. And this is funny. Thanks to Christopher B. Wright's using a Creative Commons license for his cartoons, we can add this one to our permanent collection. Enjoy.

P.S. I also love Ubersoft's phrase at the top of the page:

UBERSOFT. We Patent, So You Can't.
That captures the spirit of the patent system well.

I enjoyed Help Desk's take on a reorganization plan for SCO. Someone file this in court, please, the second SCO's exclusivity time period to come up with a plan runs out. Kidding.

For such a small article, I doubt there will be any. But just in case...

Putting the title of the newspick in the title of your comment helps everyone

SCOFFL&W
Authored by: SpaceLifeForm on Wednesday, October 29 2008 @ 12:15 AM EDT
This cartoon seems to miss a point.

If SCOFFL&W could gain the assets,
they would also gain the ability
to game the system again.

Not by extorting money from the government,
but by being able to file additional vexatious
lawsuits such as we have already seen over the
previous five years.

No? SCO being a shell still has it's outstanding
bankruptcy and ligitation, but not the 'IP' that
was used as a basis for the original ploy against IBM.

The darkside does not care about SCO, they want to
game the system, create FUD, and attack.

Someone, talk me down on this. Tell me that such
a legal loophole does not exist.

You are being MICROattacked, from various angles, in a SOFT manner.

This article inspired me to go back and read the first few (77) issues, largely
about the DOJ lawsuit against Microsoft, er, Ubersoft. Very entertaining
stuff.

The truly ridiculous thing
Authored by: elderlycynic on Wednesday, October 29 2008 @ 05:25 AM EDT
Is that it is hard for a non-lawyer to distinguish what is
going on in the courts from Ubersoft's satire.

I can't think of one clear criterion which I could give to
an observer from the planet Gnomon, to tell it how to
distinguish the satire from the reality.

Úbersoft 27 Aug 2008 .. Crossing the Tracks

She wasn't the kind of gal who went to the Skids just to talk to
a broken-down gunshoe and his whiskey-soaked partner. She had
people to do that kind of thing for her. She was covered. She was
taken care of. She had a service plan.
