OSDL Releases New Paper on SCO's Claims

    Ridgelift writes "The [0]Open Source Development Labs have released
    [1]a paper entitled SCO: Without Fear and Without Research [PDF,
    [2]HTML version at the [3]FSF] where Eben Moglen debunks SCO's claims
    to copyright infringement, and also discusses how they contradict
    themselves by citing that the GPL is both invalid and provides them
    legal protection. More information [4]at the OSDL site and via [5]an
    Internet.com article."

ITU Meeting May Decide Governance of the Net

    [0]NickFitz writes "[1]The Register has [2]an article on the
    forthcoming [3]World Summit on the Information Society, organised by
    the [4]International Telecommunications Union. It seems that the United
    States, Europe and English-speaking partners are happy to let [5]ICANN
    carry on running the show, while developing nations would prefer
    control to be handed over to the ITU. As the second stage of the
    process isn't due until November 2005, it could be some time before we
    see any changes."

MS scorns Israeli OpenOffice defection

     The Israeli Ministry of Commerce - essentially the treasury - has
    suspended all contracts with Microsoft. First out of the door is the
    Israeli employment agency, which will replace 550 out of 700 users with
    OpenOffice. The contract represents a hardware win for IBM. Some 150
    staff will stay on Microsoft Office. For now, all the switchers will
    remain on Windows, running the Win32 version of the software libre
    equivalent of Microsoft Office.
