09-10-26 Presentation EU ORCL MySQL

Published by Florian Mueller
Presentation slides used on 26 October 2009 (press conference at The Westin San Francisco Airport) and 27 October 2009 (analyst briefing at the Westin New York at Times Square) discussing competitions concerns over Oracle Corporation's acquisition of MySQL as part of Sun Microsystems. The European Commission ultimately approved the merger in January 2010. I uploaded this presentation later only for the purpose of a rebuttal of false claims that I advocated a license change for MySQL away from the General Public License (GPL).
