Bad news here about the DMCA in America being given unwanted and unwarranted further reach, allowing corporations to control their markets - and their customers - more than ever. Also slightly unsettling that the report is from the perspective of a law firm that thinks this is a good thing.

I've written in the past about the state of competitive tendering, and the problem that's caused by competitors needing to be the ones who enforce regulations by litigating. This case is a rarity, as the costs of initiating an action like this - not least in loss of customer goodwill - are huge. There really should be an update to the legislative frameworks around public competitive tendering so that it's possible for anyone to make a complaint to a regulator who then takes up and pursues the case - as happens in anti-trust cases.

Fascinating and detailed analysis of the anti-trust complaints against Google. The conspiracy theories Pamela espouses are well-based. At the start of last year as I was working on other technology policy issues with colleagues in Brussels, there were constant stories of indirectly-but-identifiably Microsoft-sponsored lobbyists and lawyers forming groups to initiate a variety of cases against Google over there, on the premise that "anti-trust has changed us and now Google are the new monopoly". I heard the same from colleagues in DC too. So, as Pamela says: "Is this perhaps more abuse of the legal and administrative systems for anticompetitive purposes? If so, could somebody investigate *that*?"

It may be satirical humour but it makes a crucially important point. The reason so many of us stopped trusting Microsoft back in the 90s was we knew that partnering with them only had two exit points: acquisition or the "theft" of our ideas and customers (for me it was the latter). FSJ points out it's deja vue all over again.

Fascinating insight gleaned from "Situations Vacant" shows just how much pain OpenOffice.org is really causing Microsoft, despite the effort their spokespeople make to dismiss it. The analysis is backed up by the statements they make about OpenOffice.org in their SEC filings.

Were I free to make public statements on this case I would be doing so, loudly. As it is, it's left to people like Matthew.

The detailed letter linked from this news release is well worth reading in full. It gives more insight into the case than has been available from any source to date.

"So the market is large, there seems to be vibrant competition, new entrants are disrupting it, and the established player's legacy is inhibiting its ability to compete."
