Microsoft: IP indemnification 'does include damages'

Microsoft has clarified its IP indemnification policy, saying that it will indemnify claimants against damages as well as just legal costs, but some legal observers say the company still needs to spell out the small print on the protection it is offering customers. Questions on Microsoft's indemnification policy were initially raised after chief executive Steve Ballmer wrote an email to customers claiming that Microsoft offered better protection against legal action over IP violations than its open-source rivals.

Wikalong - Margin Notes for the Web

While firefox is getting a lot of entirely due attention these days, there is a lot of really interesting extension work happening underneath the hood. One such extension that has a lot of potential is Wikalong examined in Wikalong - Margin Notes for the Web. It essentially is a wiki that sits in your firefox sidebar and changes depending on what site you're looking at. Great for annotating web pages while the Microsoft and SCO pages are naturally great fodder for gaming wikalong too.

Like it or not, these firms and their competitors are major influences on enterprise IT adoption.

Linux: Looking Past the Rhetoric

You can tell that Microsoft is scared about something when the company can't stop talking about it. On the client side, the software giant is so nervous about the amazing advances made by Apple Computer with its iPod portable audio player and iTunes Music Store that the company recently spent hundreds of millions of dollars rejuvenating Windows XP with a variety of digital media updates that likely will prove more confusing than exciting to many consumers. On the enterprise side, long-time nemeses such as IBM and Novell have rallied around the open-source Linux standard in their latest bid to outflank Microsoft's server products. Predictably, Microsoft has come out firing.

Sourcefire - the open source answer to network security

  • IT Directors; By Fran Howarth (Posted by dave on Nov 4, 2004 5:38 AM EDT)
  • Story Type: News Story
In the past couple of years, technologies such as intrusion detection and protection systems have become mainstream tools in the corporate security arsenal. But many feel less than satisfied with the performance of some of these technologies. In particular, the number of false positives - when a legitimate piece of communication is flagged as being a possible security threat - is proving to be expensive for organisations in terms of the amount of time IT staff must spend dealing with what is actually legitimate traffic.
