Here is a Forbes
on the SCO Group's latest round of subpoenas. There's not much
that's new here, but it is amusing to see reporter Daniel Lyons, who has
bought almost everything SCO has said without question, begin to notice
that the company is not being entirely straightforward with him.
"Oddly enough, on Nov. 11, SCO Executive Vice President Christopher
Sontag complained to Forbes about IBM's decision to send subpoenas to
investors and analysts who supported SCO.... So why didn't Sontag mention
that, uh, SCO itself was about
to target Torvalds and Stallman with subpoenas? SCO's spokesman says Sontag
and Darl McBride, SCO's chief executive, did not know that SCO's lawyers
were planning the move. But the 'Who's on first?' act is tough to swallow
since it turns out SCO notified IBM of its plans to seek discovery from
these parties more than a month ago, on Oct. 5.
