judgecorp writes: "The British Serious Fraud Office (SFO) is investigating whether British software firm Autonomy fiddled its accounts to inflate the price which HP paid for it to a whopping $10 billion. There's a problem though. Autonomy's Introspect software is used to trawl large data sets for information and is in use at the SFO for jobs such as this fraud investigation. It's not just ironic: the SFO says its £4.6 million contract with Autonomy could creata conflict of interest and it may have to pull out of the investigation"
judgecorp writes: "Kim Dotcom's legal team now includes a London law firm which has previously represented deposed Thai President Thaksin Shinawatra and presents the Mega entrepreneur in a similar heroic light. "One of the things I admire about Kim Dotcom is that after everything he had gone through, he had the courage to build a new business with new technology, and set up an entirely new form of cloud storage. It is an honour to represent him,” said lawyer Robert Amsterdam. Kim Dotcom attended a London press conference by telepresence, telling the press that the Megaupload service had perfectly good copyright takedown procedures and US copyright holders had no right to shut it down."
judgecorp writes: "Two teens have pleaded guilty to taking part in Lulzsec attacks on the Us' CIA and Britain's SOCA. Ryan Cleary and Jake Davis, aged 19 and 18 respectively admit to denial of service attacks. Cleary has also been charged in the US, but is unlikely to face extradition."
judgecorp writes: "Paul Chambers, the Briton whose joke on Twitter backfired, will be back in court following a legal stalemate, after more than two years. Chambers joked about blowing up South Yorkshire's Robin Hood airport, in January 2010, and was arrested and fined for "“sending a public electronic message that was grossly offensive or of an indecent, obscene or menacing character”. His resultant criminal record lost him his job as an accountant. Now his appeal has been heard, but the two judges disagreed with each other so Chambers will be back in court again."
judgecorp writes: "Two teen suspects have been arrested for a widely reported phone dialler attack on the Metropolitan Police's anti-terror hot line. TeaMp0ison denies any members have been taken, and the Met deny any damage was done."
