IBM Responds To Groklaw Web-Hosting Story

In response to our recent story on Groklaw, IBM has provided a statement saying that it has no connection to the editorial content posted on Groklaw.

IBM has provided a statement in response to InformationWeek's March 21 story, IBM Helps Fund Web Hosting For Anti-SCO Site Groklaw. We present IBM's statement here:

"IBM has no connection to the editorial content posted on Groklaw.

Groklaw's website, and hundreds of others, are hosted on a website at the University of North Carolina (UNC), called ibliblio. This site is described by UNC as a public library. ibiblio runs on IBM System x servers which were funded through an IBM Shared University Award Grant awarded to UNC -- a grant that predates Groklaw ever being hosted on ibiblio. Anyone can host a site there and IBM does not sponsor, nor endorse, the content of those sites.

IBM is proud to sponsor many universities around the world in various ways, including helping them host websites like the one at UNC."
