The war against open source

The Boston Globe is currently featuring a well-written article about the war against open source. The main visual coming from it is of Black Duck corporate sleuths using tools like SIFT from Service Integrity to flag open source code in corporate networks and get rid of it.

The Boston Globe is currently featuring a well-written article about the war against open source.

The main visual coming from it is of Black Duck corporate sleuths using tools like SIFT from Service Integrity to flag open source code in corporate networks and get rid of it.

SCO may be losing its lawsuit, but it is winning many hearts and minds among corporate types fearful of lawsuit.

The article is filled with ominous warnings about "SCO Copycats," but the fact is that SCO's lawsuits, so far, have gone nowhere.

So is this "software liability" business an industry that's about to be put away? Or is it here to stay?
