"Geek-news hub Slashdot.org typically features various
discussions about the open-source software movement. Now it's
featuring an open-source legal spat between itself and Microsoft,
"Last week, Microsoft's lawyers sent a letter to Slashdot
demanding that it remove several messages in one of its discussion
forums. The message -- which discussed Microsoft's tweaks to an
open-source security protocol called "Kerberos" -- violated
copyright law, Microsoft claimed. Slashdot ignored the demand and
posted Microsoft's letter online, unleashing a tempest of
anti-Microsoft rhetoric from Slashdot posters."
"Thursday Slashdot upped the ante, posting a terse letter
from Slashdot's attorney challenging the legal validity of
Microsoft's original demand."
