An anonymous reader writes: Sun's CEO has posted on his blog that Sun will be filing a counter suit some time this week to quote from the article:
"And to be clear, once again, we have no interest whatever in suing NetApps — we didn't before this case, and we don't now. But given the impracticality of what they're seeking as resolution, to take back an innovation that helps their customers as much as ours, we have no choice but to respond in court.
So later this week, we're going to use our defensive portfolio to respond to Network Appliance, filing a comprehensive reciprocal suit. As a part of this suit, we are requesting a permanent injunction to remove all of their filer products from the marketplace, and are examining the original NFS license — on which Network Appliance was started. By opting to litigate vs. innovate, they are disrupting their customers and employees across the world. "
