New No, this is innovative
"This isn't about license compliance," Deshaies says. Yes, it is. It shouldn't be, but it is. Right now, Microsoft's software asset management consulting services are pitched from the start as being about license compliance. And if the customer keeps saying no, the last stop is a threat to sic the license police on the customer.
At first glance, this looks like a straight-up protection racket. "We'd hate to see you get hurt because you haven't taken the right precautions here, if you catch my meaning." What's different is that they're honest about the fact that they're the ones you're going to get hurt by if you don't pay.

It shows they learned the lesson that SCO taught its customers: You're only safe by not becoming a customer to begin with. Microsoft took that lesson, mixed in some good old-fashioned extortion, and came up with this process.

Wait, they made an investment in SCO, supposedly to license their "Intellectual Property". But -- as IBM has proven -- SCO's only "IP" is this extortion scheme. So MS bought a proprietary impelementation of a public domain concept, extended it, and called it their own. Bah, I guess it's "same old same old" after all.
