Oracle Admits To Microsoft Probe

The Oracle Corp. has confirmed it hired a detective agency to investigate rival Microsoft Corp., and said the work showed that Microsoft paid trade and policy groups to ''influence'' public opinion during its federal antitrust trial. The work by Investigative Group International Inc. allegedly included a $1,200 offer to janitors to get a peek at the trash of the Association for Competitive Technology, a trade group.

Asking State Legislators For Less

BY Martha Jenkins

On June 20, several Orange County residents and I visited the state Legislature. We were part of the grass-roots group Citizens for a Sound Economy. Our slogan of the day was "We Want Less," and our legislators - Sen. Howard Lee, Sen. Ellie Kinnaird, Rep. Verla Insko and Rep. Joe Hackney - were surprised that we weren't coming to ask for more money from state government! Instead, we shared the philosophy of Citizens for a Sound Economy that what we really want is less - less taxes, less government regulation and less restrictions on the freedoms guaranteed to us by our Constitution.

Special Interest Legislation to Extend Patent Will Raise Prescription Drug Costs for Consumers

Citizens for a Sound Economy today condemned a provision of an agriculture appropriations bill designed to continue a lucrative patent held by Columbia University. “At a time of widespread concern about access to necessary medicines, it flies in the face of common sense to guarantee a wealthy university a stream of millions of dollars from the ill and infirm,” said August Stofferahn, CSE’s Deputy Director for Health, Education and Labor Policy.

Gore Dodges Responsibility with Phony Energy Strategy

Citizens for a Sound Economy today criticized Vice President Al Gore’s newly-announced “national energy strategy” for the 21st century. “This so-called ‘strategy’ is nothing more than a political stunt designed to dodge responsibility for soaring oil prices,” said Patrick Burns, Director of Environmental Policy at CSE. “Rather than rely on markets to make investment decisions, the Vice President has crafted a hodgepodge of government handouts.”

Just Do What's Right, Mr. President

Copley News Service, 06/27/2000 As much as I want to see a tax cut enacted this year, I'm coming to the conclusion that the price the president is demanding for his signature on a tax bill is just too steep to pay. Bill Clinton has said the only way he will sign a tax cut into law before he leaves office is in exchange for Congress' passing a large new health-care entitlement program. That's presidential extortion, and it's no way to run a country.

Double Duty for a Microsoft Investigator

BY John Markoff and Matt Richtel

pirates and counterfeiters of the company's software, it turned to a private investigative firm with a reputation for coming up with sensitive information for high-profile clients. So Microsoft was taken aback this month by reports that linked the firm, Investigative Group International, to mysterious efforts to obtain the trash of a pro-Microsoft trade association in Washington, presumably looking for documents that would embarrass the company as it fought a high-stakes antitrust case.
