Message-ID: <20030616231518.GH12655@medusa>

There has been some interest in having a protest (more of a picket) in 
front of SCO's office. Most of us are pretty frustrated with what has 
happened over the last few months; this might be the best way to get 
our opinions out. Plus we would probably make Slashdot and the local news. :-)
If we do it we'll probably want to get the PLUG (and other user groups)
involved. 

I called up the Lindon police and talked to them about the do's and don't 
and they are perfectly fine with us doing it. (The officer I talked to 
almost sounded a little shocked; a protest in Lindon? :-)

I was thinking if we do decide to do it, next Friday in the late afternoon
might be good; there aren't any classes and people could probably leave work
an hour or two early.

What are people's opinions about this? If we decide to do it, that's fine with
me. If not, that's fine too. :-)

Off the top of my head, if we okay it with the govt. they only problem
left is BYUSA. It'd be easier to not associate this with the club too
much. Make it a Plug activity instead. No official arrangement for
transportation and I think we're okay.

Hum, guess that's true. Pretty much we just need to see how many people
are interested first. I'm hoping for atleast 50. We'll work the date out
eventally if the response is good.

Yeah, We'll probably have to do something like that. Here are a few things the officer
said we can't do:

1) Go onto their property
2) Talk to ANY customers entering and leaving the premise
3) Disturb normal business activities
4) Block traffic or people on the sidewalk

Once we have a date we just need to call them up and tell them. Then we're 
ready to go.

Subject: [uug] SCO Protest - sound and fury but let's make it signify
Message-ID: < E19S6Yb-0000Pj-00@phantom.byu.edu>

[For those of you just joining us, those of us who are sick of SCO's 
stupidity and "reckless endangerment" of the Open Source world are going 
to picket outside their offices.]

Okay, looks like a decent response for the picket lines.  Those that
have work on the 20th will also have it on the 27th, but those BYU
students that have classes on the 27th will not have them on the 20th.
Therefore, I propose the 20th -- the sooner the better, while the issue
is still hot.  We need to be there when the traffic is the highest
(think 7-Up and "high traffic areas"), so that means starting around 3pm 
and going until 5pm, all the employees are gone, our interest is gone, 
or we've all been arrested :)

We're going to look really stupid picketing without any large signs.  I
personally am going to bring some posterboard and markers, but if you're
coming, do the same.  Don't count on borrowing someone else's paper or
holding their signs.  If you feel motivated to make flyers/handbills,
feel free to do so.  But *please* make your presentation professional, 
avoid name-calling, and ensure that your information is accurate.  As 
has been previously posted to this list, an excellent summary of the 
case is at:

http://www.opensource.org/sco-vs-ibm.html

Also, keep up on the Slashdot articles (but not necessarily the 
comments).  It would also be nice if we could get someone with a boom 
box pumping out "the Free Software song."

It's also likely to be warm and very sunny in the afternoon, and there
isn't a tree over 8 feet tall anywhere near the SCO building.  Bring
plenty of drinking water (or liquid refreshment of choice) and sunscreen
so your monitor tan doesn't turn into a bright red.  There's also
nothing but office buildings around, so I imagine that Altiris and
Comdex will get annoyed if some picketer is running into their building
every 10 minutes to use the bathroom.

As for transportation, the facility is in Lindon.  SCO's site has a nice
little map for how to get there:

http://www.sco.com/company/directions2.html

If you don't want to show up on your own, we will meet at 2:30 pm at one 
of two locations:
- Provo High School parking lot, in front of the main entrance
- Parking lot of Home Depot in Lindon (right off the I-15 entrance).
I will be at the former location, Evan McNabb at the latter.  If you 
live south of BYU campus in Provo and don't want to walk to Provo High, 
I can come get you around 2:00.  Email me.

To close, let me re-iterate that this needs to stay legal:

1) Go onto their property
2) Talk to ANY customers entering and leaving the premesis
3) Disturb normal business activities
4) Block traffic or people on the sidewalk

It also needs to stay separate from the official UUG domain.  There
will likely be press coverage, so remember that the BYU UUG is not
sponsoring, coordinating, organizing, or officially endorsing this
event.  Otherwise, it could be our last.

Okay, now that my paranoid side has had its say, let's do this!  At the
very least, this is gonna be a lot of fun.  Maybe we'll get into
Revolution OS II: The Penguin's Revenge.  At the very least, we'll be 
representing thousands -- nay, millions -- of geeks world-wide who are 
even more upset than we are.

Warning, RANT.  Feel free to delete.

So you're saying that the UUG being affiliated with a perfectly legal and 
given right by the U.S. constitution, ie free speech, can be a bad thing?  Do 
we need to reserve the sidewalk with scheduling or something?  Do they need 
to send out someone to make sure we have enough people to take up the 
sidewalk?  I mean, as long as we are not starting fires and overturning cars, 
what's the big deal?

*sigh*

I know, I know, BYUSA.  It just seems odd to me that we are supposedly 
fighting a war to help protect our country and what it stand for, and the 
rights that it gives us, only to be scared to actually exercise those rights.  
Go figure.

End of rant.  Crapfully crapfully yours, deleted.

We have called and let the police know. Why? Because that's what you're supposed
to do, just so they know what's going on if they get a phone call Friday afternoon.

We have the freedom of speech, but there are laws about what you can say and do as
you exercise your rights.

It's more than just BYUSA, it's BYU. At the university I used to attend they
had this type of stuff all the time; BYU is a little different. Someone (I believe)
got kicked out of BYU for being a little to strong in their protesting up in
Salt Lake. 

We just want to make sure that we obey the law and atleast act professional. I
hope that's not too much to ask. :-)

I of course won't be there.  I'd definitely like to see photos though.  If
we're really shunning this as a BYU UUG activity, probably won't be able to
post pics on uug.byu.edu;  I'd still really like to see photos though.

PS  Assuming that it is actually someone's job to find out if doing such a
protest under the name BYU UUG would endager BYUSA membership, I ask, "Is
that person going to find out?"

"It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission" :-)

This is just a bunch of us getting together for a "celebration". I'm not too 
worried about our BYUSA membership. I value a lot of things in life more than
that. :-)

I'm not to concerned; as long as we don't have an announcement on our webpage
it isn't an "official" activity. :-)

Yeah Bob, I'm doing everything for fame and glory. What I am saying is that 
this is our chance to get the local media aware of how we feel (well, all of
us except you) and tell the slashdotters that not all of us out here are fans
of SCO (well, most of us that is). :-)

It's sad to see that a lot of the members of this list have gone so far off in their desire to gain fame and
notoriety at the expense of another.. I don't like what SCO is doing any more than anyone else. But the fact
of the matter is, if there is any truth to their allegations, the offenders should be prosecuted. If someone
breaks the law, they should be prepared to accept the punishment. This is not my opinion, it is the way things
are. If Microsoft stole GPL'd code and used it in a closed-source project, you would all be furious and
demanding justice. I don't see how this is any different looking at it objectively. If there is in fact no
truth in the case, that will be decided. Either way, it's sad to see that the primary focus of many of the
members of the mailing list has turned to spite and childish attempts to get noticed.

I have better things to do with my time than stage infantile protests just to gain attention and seek out the
fame associated with it. No matter how you try to justify this thing, that is the only reason you are doing
it. It will not change anything in the case. It will not hurt SCO. It is only being done to gain recognition.
Nothing else.

This said, I hope the list can get it's focus back on track and get back to the things that are important. I
wish you all well in your pursuit of Linux and other projects out there that are worth supporting. I've had a
good time helping out with questions on this list and in some of the general discussion. But it's time to move
on to better things now.

I'm sad to see how far down the list has gone. But as Despair, Inc. put it so well:

Later,

I think that if IBM is wrong they should be punished. What I don't agree with is
the FUD that SCO has been saying about Linux.

If that's what you think, that's ok. I don't think I will hurt SCO, but if I have the 
opportunity to advocate what I believe in, I'll do it. By your standards others who
have protested such as Ghandi and Martin Luther King were childish wimps too. They must
have wanted attention too.

And if SCO wins will I have to pay for a licsense of Linux? Will the GPL be valid?

Bob, 
I respect the OLD Caldera. They did a lot of good for the Linux community (you named them all
like: rpm, openoffice, etc). The NEW Caldera (SCO) is sue happy and are threatening everything
they once stood for. We are fighting what THE NEW SCO has done in the last 3 months.

Have fun with your better things.
