[News] The Gangsters of Thomson Reuters Still Attack Free Software

Hash: SHA1

Thomson Reuters Subpoenas Zotero Hacker Identities

,----[ Quote ]
| Zotero is a fantastic Firefox addon for reference management. Mozilla used to 
| ship it as part of Firefox Campus Edition. Recently, they got sued by Thomson 
| Reuters because Zotero 1.5 acquired the ability to convert citation-style 
| files from their proprietary Endnote software. I have an SVN/Trac account 
| there because I contributed a little bit, and I just got this email:    
|     Dear Zotero Development Community Members,
|     First off, please allow me to apologize for clogging your inbox with this 
|     unsolicited message, but I hope you'll understand that the severity of 
|     the situation requires me to contact you. In its ongoing litigation with 
|     George Mason University, Thomson Reuters has demanded that the university 
|     produce contact information (name, email, and username) associated with 
|     all two hundred eighty-six Zotero SVN/Trac accounts.     



Reuters Says George Mason University Is Handing Out Its Proprietary Software

,----[ Quote ]
| Thomson Reuters demands $10 million and an injunction to stop George Mason
| University from distributing its new Web browser application, Zotero
| software, an open-source format that allows users to convert Reuters' EndNote
| Software. Reuters claims George Mason is violating its license agreement and
| destroying the EndNote customer base.



Memo to Reuters: stop spreading FUD about Novell and Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| The British news agency Reuters came up with a sensational bit of
| spin on Friday, US time, claiming that the Free Software Foundation
| could "ban" Novell from selling Linux.
| [...]
| What then can the FSF do? Why is this misinformation being spread?
| As to why misinformation is being spread, the reporter probably didn't
| have a clue about the subject he set out to tackle. "Ban" is a very
| good word to pull readers.
