SCO Lawsuit Done


After cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 latest defeat for SCO in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir attempt to game US intellectual property law, perhaps it is over. The SCO-Linux litigation was absurd, predicated on 80 lines of insubstantial code on previously released software that was no longer used, but it was a hook for probable cause and thus cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 litigation commenced. Presumably, Microsoft told one hedge fund this was potentially viable, giving more reason to hate Bill Gates (as if Vista and Clippy weren't enough).

The mercenary lawyers who present cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se cases give $5 whores a bad name, because at least in those cases cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re's some utilitarian benefit. I remember in my litigation, after one hearing cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 opposing lawyer smiled and offered to shake my hand, like, this was just business. It was to her, but to me. Not being able to use anything related to "volatility", or "mean-variance optimization" because it would all be fruit from cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 poisoned tree, would make me forsake all my human capital, as well as a subject I really liked. I didn't shake her hand, I thought she was scum. Later at some meeting during cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 standard small talk, she was mentioning her charity work with orphans in South America or something, and I thought, you're still scum. I'm sure she thinks it balances out, engaging in vindictive lawsuits for insecure paranoids by day, helping heal cleft lips by night, but if cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re is a God, He won't allow dreck like that to pay for sins with charity.

There isn't a word for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 people who use cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 law this way (anti-mensch?). Unfortunately, after RIM paid $650MM to a patent troll, lots of people think cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y can buy up property rights and extort companies. These people are parasites, pure and simple, all cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 worse because cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y probably live in nice communities among virtuous people unlike standard parasites that no regular being would recognize as equal, and are educated enough to know cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 context of what cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y are doing, but cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 law allows people to quote scripture for venal ends.

The worst thing, if you are on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 end of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se, is finding out that reason no longer matters, racá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r, every absurd claim such as "you can't use mean-variance optimization" or "profitability" as a factor in assessing stocks, is considered a viable property right assertion. If 'profits', 'volatility', and 'mean-variance optimization' are things I had to prove were not obviously part of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 public domain, consider if you were a using something less obvious like pairs trading. Of course, you would 'win' in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 end, but by cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n you haven't worked in a couple years and spent millions of dollars. Anyone working for a hedge fund in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 US is open to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 whims of rich men and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir pit-bulls, you have to choose your business partners very carefully. Obviously, this case brings up bad memories.

SCO and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir brethren give pond-scum a bad name. It's a shame cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y don't have to pay for wasting Linus Torvald's time.

The best revenge is to eat cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m (Dr H.Lecter).

But nothing to excess, one can die of a "surfeit of lamprey".
