SCO vs Groklaw's Pamela Jones
For three and a half years, a blogger named Pamela Jones has led a relentless online crusade against software maker SCO Group, posting thousands of articles bashing the company for suing IBM over the Linux operating system.
Now the Lindon, Utah, software company is fighting back by seeking to take a deposition from Jones. Just one problem: They can't find her.
SCO tried last week to serve a subpoena to Jones at a house in Darien, Conn., where they believe she's been living, but the attempt was unsuccessful, according to a person close to the matter, who spoke on condition of anonymity.
Why would SCO want to depose Jones?
"My guess is if you go after a blogger, it'll provoke the blogosphere. It's a pretty stupid move," Dalglish says.
