What has kept me busy since Breakpoint 2010: A huge white-collar crime

category: offtopic [glöplog]
Frankly i found parts of the text rather garish:
Viprinet managed to do something that few people had believed would be possible: the employees of the company mostly consisted of newcomers, friends and family of the founders, the company therefore felt like a family.
The products of Viprinet meanwhile helped to save lives in Denmark, got installed into fire trucks in the Netherlands - and were of course used in countless offices worldwide.

How poignant. Yes, I get it, you're the good guys. Just spare me from the string section.

Remember that one time when the Viprinet team flew into space to destroy that meteor flying towards earth.. *swoon*

Cheers Scamp and everyone at Viprinet, this must be quite a stressful sequence of events.

but whoever wrote that text seriously needs to work on his/her english and cut back on the pathos. jesus! the only thing that's missing is an image of the viprinet customer support hotline, staffed by knowledgable and ultra-cute kittens!

I'm having the same issue as others - I really want to read the story, but I just can't cope with the text.

babelfish it to finnish and then back to english and it's much better to read!
like a John Grisham novel ... amazing plot ... sounds like a Hollywood plot mixed of Michael Clayton, The Insider and Wallstreet ... IF they make a movie ... Leonardo diCaprio ....

"Deal with reality or reality will deal with you"
People spend 3 to 5 hours a day in front of tv (average), So now, when a concrete problem appears, nothing is left to actually think the problem.

Stories like that are actually * COMMON * in buisness, and I could tell hundred stories like that(from the amiga/morphos stories during last 20 years as from my own experience), although this one is quite "terrible".But at last, no army is implied in this one (who knows?), nothing burned, and no one is dead.
The way capitalism is functionning now is more close to feudal system or mafia than anything. For me, capitalism's system and liberal laws aims has always been to allow some people to "run away with the cash box". In the current crisis context with resource depletion implying there will never be growth again, a lot of people , more and more, will "run away with the cash box".

About laws and legality, intellectual property and else: You may not have to be marxist, but you have to realize there *IS* a class struggle, and that nowadays that struggles happens in laws that are voted in your country, europe and US, against you, by upper class people well aware of what they're doing, and they will not inform you of "that new law voted last year during summer no one talked about". (let's not talk about their tax haven)... And preventing little companies to have part in the monopoly concern them very much.
So at the end, the main problem is a problem of "rights" (always), but you know that. Let's buz it like timbaland was.

Read all of it. Very weird story. Incredible. Just... wow.

I keep my fingers crossed for the guys and girls at viprinet. Read the text in German and wondered how the self proclaimed (?) editors manage to mimick such a bad Dan Brown writing style :/

we can conclude from this: watch out for the illuminati :P
it was assumed that the District Court of Mainz would remedy the situation quickly by providing a temporary injunction making clear that the removal of the CEO was void.

That did not happen, Witteler had this covered. Prior to the shareholder meeting they had already deposited letters of protection against a temporary injunction to the District Court of Mainz. These documents consisted of over 100 pages and contained manipulated evidence. Towards the court, the impression was created that this would be very complex case, which the court could not decide about at short notice.

Liberalism in all its splendor. Weird, but usual hostile takeover. I hope you all realize that they just applied what they learned in CEO schools. (certainly a US CEO liberal school, I read they decerebrate them a lot there.). Bloody fucktards, destroying societies and nature. hope they die.

ryg: I agree that maybe there is a bit too much pathos. If anyone volunteers, I guess corrections on that english might be welcome.

Also, alleged bad guys should not be listed in the "protagonists" column, I don't think.

Interesting read, but as other people already said, this is (sadly!) not too uncommon and the writing is sub-par, also in the German version ("die Viprinet", WTF?).

Adding those people to my personal shit list. Best wishes for Viprinet

How could this be written in a more objective and neutral fashion? I agree that here and there, there are some rosy words about Viprinet, but besides that?
TL;DR: http://viprinet.com/en/company/cassi. Also much better written.

it's actually the correct terminolgy ... "die Viprinet Gesellschaft mit begrenzter Haftung"
