Copyright Violation by Ixorg and SCO
Wed Dec 8 19:37:18 2004
I just heard from the person who submitted the article. He says
(and I believe him) that he DID properly attribute the article and
that it was IXorg's fault that was taken off and that they will
post an apology.
I see also that SCO has properly attributed the article now.
Nothing more to see here, folks.. :-)
I would have rather handled this with them privately rather than
publically, but they (Ixorg) don't have anything on their website
that indicates how I would contact them.
Ixorg took http://aplawrence.com/SCOFAQ/FAQ_scotec7pflowcontrol.html
and gave it to SCO who published it in their latest newsletter and
That is my material, and is not public domain.
(Article continues after the break)
I don't mind that, but I DO mind that Ixorg has taken credit for
something they didn't write.
A public apology by both SCO and Ixorg will be sufficient to
rectify this. The article at http://www.sco.com/partners/news/0412/ixorg_corner.html
may be published but proper attribution must be made.
I also want a listing of other "Contributed by IXorg" articles
so I can see if they have done more of this.
I expect this to be done quickly.

Many of the products and books I review are things I purchased for my own use. Some were given to me specifically for the purpose of reviewing them. I resell or can earn commissions from the sale of some of these items. Links within these pages may be affiliate links that pay me for referring you to them. That's mostly insignificant amounts of money; whenever it is not I have made my relationship plain. I also may own stock in companies mentioned here. If you have any question, please do feel free to contact me.
I am a Kerio reseller. Articles here related to Kerio products reflect my honest opinion, but I do have an obvious interest in selling those products also.
Specific links that take you to pages that allow you to purchase the item I reviewed are very likely to pay me a commission. Many of the books I review were given to me by the publishers specifically for the purpose of writing a review. These gifts and referral fees do not affect my opinions; I often give bad reviews anyway.
