Guess Who Owns unXis.de?
Saturday, July 11 2009 @ 01:54 AM EDT

Guess who owns the domain unXis.de? If you check betterwhois, you find that Eric le Blan owns the domain unXis.com, but if you go to Germany's equivalent, denic.de, a familiar SCO name appears.

Hans Bayer, the former CEO for The SCO Group GmbH (still listed on SCO's website as a SCO executive, as Vice President Worldwide Sales).

So, is unXis a separate entity, or just SCOfolk, or what's the real deal?

Update: If you read through the comments, you'll find that readers have been checking at various countries' whois records. And folks began buying up this name in at least one case on the same day as the June 15 hearing. At the hearing, SCOfolk testified that the deal had only just been inked, literally a last-minute surprise. Yet the unxis.co.uk domain, according to Nominet, was purchased by Eric le Blan that same day, but when?

Remember that the June 15 hearing was scheduled to hear motions to convert SCO to Chapter 7. It was not scheduled to hear arguments about a hearing on a sales plan. Yet the domain name was already being bought that day. And it began at 2 PM Eastern time, Delaware time. Eric Le Blan registered unxis.biz on Tucows, according to BetterWhoIs, on June 15 at 22:27:14 GMT; unxis.org at "15-Jun-2009 22:27:07 UTC" and unxis.info at "15-Jun-2009 22:27:22 UTC".

In Italy, the unxis.it domain was purchased by a SCO regional manager on July 9. And unxis.ch was purchased by a SCO distributor, Jutz Josef, too. Why are SCO partners and employees buying up this domain name?
