PSOUG / Oracle Fights EU Objections to Its Sun Bid

Oracle Fights EU Objections to Its Sun Bid

BRUSSELS—Oracle Corp. is digging in against the European Union's objections to its bid for Sun Microsystems Inc.

In a closed-door hearing that began Thursday and is to continue Friday, and in legal papers that haven't been made public, the U.S.-based database giant is mounting a broad attack on the EU's proposition that Sun's MySQL is an important competitive force in the database industry that market-leader Oracle shouldn't be allowed to own.

Oracle contends that the EU's executive arm, the European Commission, misrepresented the opinions of database users and gave a"distorted view" of the market by "selectively" quoting from surveys as it put together its case.

U.S. authorities have cleared the $7.4 billion bid, but the EU's concerns have delayed it.

Complaints that the EU is selective in its use of evidence are common fare from companies that find themselves in the regulator's crosshairs. Recently, Intel Corp. claimed the EU ignored exculpatory material in its antitrust finding and €1.06 billion ($1.56 billion)fine against the chip maker.

PSOUG / Widenius Warns Against MySQL Falling Into Oracle's Hands
« on: December 13, 2009, 10:35:51 AM »
Widenius Warns Against MySQL Falling Into Oracle's Hands

A user sent us a blog post from MySQL co-founder Monty Widenius calling for help to "save MySQL from Oracle's clutches."

While the US DoJ approved Oracle's purchase of Sun back in August, the European Commission has been less forthcoming. Widenius points out that Oracle has been using their customers to put pressure on the EC, and he questions Oracle's commitment to MySQL, saying their vague promises aren't good enough. He writes:

"Oracle has NOT promised (as far as I know and certainly not in a legally binding manner):
  • To keep (all of) MySQL under an open source license;
  • Not to add closed source parts, modules or required tools;
  • To not raise MySQL license or MySQL support prices;
  • To release new MySQL versions in a regular and timely manner;
  • To continue with dual licensing and always provide affordable commercial licenses to MySQL to those who needs them (to storage vendors and application vendors) or provide MySQL under a more permissive license;
  • To develop MySQL as an Open Source project;
  • To actively work with the community;
  • Apply submitted patches in a timely manner;
  • To not discriminate patches that make MySQL compete more with Oracle's other products;
  • To ensure that MySQL is improved also in manners that make it compete even more with Oracle's main offering."

This is, of course, one of the reasons open source licenses are so useful and so powerful: anyone can fork the code and keep developing the software, no matter what Oracle does or doesn't do.

PSOUG / Oracle accuses Brussels over Sun evidence
« on: December 11, 2009, 06:48:37 PM »
Oracle executives and their advisers on Thursday accused Europe’s top competition regulator of misrepresenting customer evidence as they tried to overturn objections to the US group’s proposed $7.4bn purchase of Sun Microsystems.

Oral hearings, held in private, over the deal began in Brussels on Thursday morning and will continue on Friday.

Officials at the European Commission are concerned about the impact the merger could have on the database market – in particular Oracle’s control of MySQL, an open source database company bought last year by Sun.

Although this is a relatively small part of the overall deal, critics say Oracle would have an incentive to suppress or restructure a product that is given away for free and poses a disruptive threat to its own business. The other big players in the market are IBM and Microsoft.

The Commission has based its concerns partly on the results of a market survey, and the responses generated from database users.

But on Thursday Oracle was understood to have argued that customer comments were misrepresented and cherry-picked. According to its reply to the Commission, which has been seen by the Financial Times and which formed the basis for Thursday’s presentation, Oracle claims “many if not most”of the two dozen customers cited in the Commission’s statement of objections “do not support the Commission’s theory of harm”.

PSOUG / Senators Ask EC To Let Oracle-Sun Deal Go Through

Senators Ask EC To Let Oracle-Sun Deal Go Through

The European Union has managed to do something that US Presidents often find difficult: to make 59 US Senators from both sides of the aisle agree on something.

A group led by John Kerry (D) and Orrin Hatch(R) has sent a letter to the European Union, asking it to wrap up the investigation of the Oracle-Sun merger and let the deal go through. Interestingly, the letter emphasizes the damage the delay and uncertainty are doing to Sun."

The article paraphrases a Gartner analyst, who points out that the Senators' letter "comes from a US point of view and doesn't take into account how the EU operates.
