Subject: McBride needs own press site
McBride said that his company would soon be erecting a Web site to set out SCO's side of the story.

Now all the other journalists know the truth, they have to create their own site to spread the FUD, otherwise nobody will print it. This will just be a copy of their website about the legal stuff.

SCO has clearly put its side of the story in the legal documents they provided to the court. I don't know what else they need to say, that would justify a separate website.

Same story on
with one nice addition:

Why they haven't done so already, so far into the legal battle, is a matter of conjecture. Although IBM has repeatedly claimed that SCO's repeated calls for more material is an indication that it is doing little more than fishing for information in the hope of finding something incriminating.

I think SCO's lawyers want SCO to lose. Boies is probably encouraging Darl to publish more statements that will sink their cases.

Subject: New SCO Website

Has anyone searched domain registrations to see what websites SCO owns and if they've registered any new ones? All I've found out is that their net block is under Canopy/Center7.

Subject: two articles about sco's prosco website

SCO sets up website to rival Groklaw

SCO website to tell Linux supporters why they're wrong

The site will include a calendar of the cases SCO currently has in litigation as well as access to the legal filings made in SCO's cases. There are, however, no plans to allow readers to discuss the documents on the website. "If we opened it up to that, it would simply become another one of the message boards that our detractors use to try and overwhelm us," Stowell said.

But while SCO is keen to get its view out there, it still faces two obstacles: one, the site will be written by SCO itself and so will not be as persuasive as a more independent suit. And second, SCO has now given the zealots in the open-source community a target to aim at - (Incidentally, and are not owned by SCO - we wonder how long it will be before SCO decides they belong to it and embarks on another two legal cases.)

How long the site will stay up before it is bombarded with a denial-of-service attack is open for debate, but you can bet it won't be long.
