Intellectual property theft Punishment

Wrong Target for Times in Intellectual Property Theft Case  November 8, 2010 – 04:39 pm

It is good that the New York Times has a "Public Editor" to keep an eye on the ethics of the paper. But sometimes this seems a bit like a make-work position and valuable column space is wasted chastising Times' staffers for minor missteps. That was the case on Sunday, when Arthur Brisbane -- the current Public Editor -- took business columnist Joe Nocera to task for a conflict of interest around a piece he wrote on Hewlett-Packard's new CEO,  Léo Apotheker.

Here's the back story. Apotheker is coming to HP from his job as CEO of SAP, a German software maker that recently admitted liability in a case where it stole a huge amount of intellectual property from Oracle. Apotheker wasn't CEO when this brazen crime was allegedly committed by SAP subsidiary TomorrowNow, but Nocera published a column on October 9 that suggested that "as a member of SAP’s executive board, Mr. Apotheker clearly knew about the theft."

Nocera observed that Hewlett-Packard was engaged in shocking hypocrisy: First they fire CEO Mark Hurd for minor expense account padding and then they turn around to give the same job to someone who may have been involved in one of the biggest ethical transgressions seen in the software business in recent years.

What Nocera didn't reveal when he wrote his column was that his wife is communications director for the law firm that represents Oracle in its suit against SAP. This conflict was the subject of Brisbane's column. But Brisbane writes that he believes Nocera's excuse that he simply didn't know about the role of his wife's firm. Anyone who has ever been in a marriage with two busy people will also be inclined to trust Nocera's version of events.

Thank you part one

Thank you for taking my questions seriously. I appreciate your very "professional" response, including the quotes and the "[sic]" added to avoid any misquotes or errors on your own behalf. I can tell that you are an attorney. I can tell you are an Intellectual Property Atto...p all the lighter elements within and use them for fuel, while the heavier elements near by coalesce and form orbiting bodies. I know that there are anomalies, and I know that not every star system is necessarily like ours, but what I am hoping to find out here is why, specifically, we don’t believe that most stars have a distinct probability of having orbiting planetary bodies.
