SCO UNABLE TO FIND PROMINENT JOURNALIST

15. February 2007, 13:43 | by WD Milner | Full Article |

It would appear from a recent article at InformationWeek that SCO is unable to find the author and principal contributor of the Groklaw.net web site.

According to SCO, the article alleges, Pamela Jones “doesn’t exist and is actually a composite character invented by IBM’s legal department, according to an insider at SCO”.

Jones has written extensively on the Groklaw site about the SCO / IBM lawsuit regarding the alleged distribution of UNIX code in Linux by IBM.

One of the interesting things about SCO’s current difficulty is that it really shouldn’t be that difficult.

  • Jones has done interviews with Creative Commons, Linux Online, Linux Planet amongst others.
  • Her articles have appeared in Linux Journal, LWN, Linux World, Linux Today, and LinuxWorld.com.
  • She also writes a monthly column for the UK print publication LinuxUser.
  • She is one of the contributing authors of the O’Reilly book, “Open Sources 2.0 : The Continuing Evolution”.

It would seem obvious there is a person behind the name “Pamela Jones” and yet SCO can’t seem to find this person. Now maybe it’s just me but that says more to me about SCO than it does about the existance of Pamela Jones.
