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 https://aplawrence.com/SCOFAQ/FAQ_scotec7pflowcontrol.html and gave it to SCO who published it in their latest newsletter and at https://www.sco.com/partners/news/0412/ixorg_corner.html. That is my material, and is not public domain.
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 https://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.
Generally speaking, most articles at my website are NOT free to republish in any form.
