Unfortunately I don't think a website like that
will make a scrap of difference
What will do is Microsoft's actions - to either
say Linux does or
doesn't offend against Microsoft IP. They say it does but then that
needs to be backed with a lawsuit and it means nothing without it.
If Microsoft keeps on saying it does and can't/won't prove anything
then the allegations will die like SCOs ones. Is anybody scared of SCO
now? People possibly are scared of Microsoft now but won't be in a
year or two if they don't sue or make a hash of a lawsuit (like SCO).
While I agree with your original premise, I think this is a very
different case to the SCO case.
First, there are the relative differences in the sizes of the companies.
SCO was a failing vendor, who were going through all sorts of attempts
to retain their market share. The whole thing was a joke from the start.
Conversely, Microsoft is a dominant position in the market, and is doing
this to squash opposition, not to fund a golden handshake to the board
SCO's claims only came out with a lawsuit, whereas Microsoft's claims
come out all the time, without a lawsuit, and it is the threat of
litigation that causes people to buckle. Microsoft hasn't needed to
bring a lawsuit against "linux" or it's vendors regarding these threats
to date because the fear of this happening is enough to foment
resistance to using linux.
This is changing, slowly, but it's still the case.
Personally, I don't think this website will work because no legal
department or advisory on the planet would let Microsoft play its
cards. The lack of play doesn't mean the cards doesn't exist either
(although I personally think it's all FUD). I also don't think any legal
department or advisory on the planet would actually advocate that the
lack of play means the evidence doesn't exist. It's just too great a risk.
