Submission + - Gracenote Founder Rewriting History at Wikipedia

An anonymous reader writes: Gracenote founder Steve Scherf is busy again in his attempts to rewrite history after his recent interview at Wired. This time he around he is aggressively deleting or seeking removal of any content on Wikipedia which discuss the controversy behind the commercialization of the formerly GPL'd cddb. Slashdotters may remember when joined the Bad Patent Club back in 2000. It followed up by starting lawsuits against its customers for trying to switch to freedb and for alleged patent violations. Are there any Slashdotters out there who know the facts about Gracenote — its history, its business practices, its lawsuits? Wikipedia needs your help.
