What would the blind maiden of justice say about 3rd party support?

Round and round the merry-go-round we go. Oracle is suing former partner CedarCrestone, similar to the accusations Oracle took against SAP, TomorrowNow & Rimini Street. Oracle is suing CedarCrestone for breach of contract, unfair competition and copyright infringement (the latter being the biggest no no with any software vendor). Rimini Street is also being sued by Oracle for similar issues.

In the case of SAP’s TomorrowNow, Oracle was awarded $1.3 billion in 2010 only to have a judge set aside the verdict. The case has still not yet been resolved. In early Sept. 2012, Oracle lodged an appeal for settlement.

When an actual ruling comes down and is upheld, everyone can let out their collective breath. Any ruling will change the way support is viewed by both the software vendors and their customers.
