ORACLE HAD DETECTIVES SNOOP ON MICROSOFT

SAN FRANCISCO -- Oracle Corp.'s Chief Executive Officer, Larry Ellison, on Wednesday defended the business software maker's decision to investigate Microsoft, saying the software giant's "covert" activities needed to be exposed. "I didn't go through Bill's garbage. But it is also true we set out to expose Microsoft's covert activities," Ellison said. "We didn't spy. We were trying to expose what Microsoft was doing."

Oracle 'out to expose' Microsoft

BY John Hendren

WASHINGTON - The chairman of Oracle yesterday admitted hiring detectives to investigate Microsoft and defended the effort, including a cash-for-trash offer, as a means to force "full disclosure" of Microsoft's financial ties to allies. Larry Ellison acknowledged authorizing Oracle lobbyists in Washington to "investigate" Microsoft, but added that until Tuesday he had never heard of the private detective company that was hired.

In AP Interview, Oracle CEO Larry Ellison defends Microsoft probe

BY MICHAEL LIEDTKE

With an estimated $47 billion personal fortune, Oracle Corp. chairman Larry Ellison will never be mistaken for a humble civic servant. But the flamboyant chief executive did his best Wednesday to depict his company's spying campaign against Microsoft Corp. as a public service. "I feel very good about what we did," Ellison said Wednesday as he defended Oracle's hiring of Investigative Group International Inc., which looked into several groups that publicly supported Microsoft in the federal antitrust case.

Suspending Gas Tax Just a Start

Citizens for a Sound Economy today called proposals on Capitol Hill to suspend the gas tax a good start, but one that fails to go far enough. Patrick Burns, CSE’s Director of Environmental Policy, said “We shouldn’t just suspend this tax. We should abolish it completely as we move toward fundamental tax reform.”

Tech Bytes - Tid Bits in Tech News: Twisted Words and New Taxes? Internet Tax Legislation Before the House Tomorrow

Tomorrow the House Commercial and Administrative Law Subcommittee will hold a hearing on three Internet tax bills, H.R. 4267, “The Internet Tax Reform and Reduction Act of 2000,” H.R. 4460, “The Internet Tax Simplification Act of 2000,” and H.R. 4462, “The Fair and Equitable Interstate Tax Compact Simplification Act of 2000.” Each piece of legislation would extend the federal moratorium on new or discriminatory taxation of the Internet or electronic commerce. However, that is where the good news ends.

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.
