Re: Necessary legal step or sending a message to the crowd?
A necessary legal step! Oracle naturally don't like anyone taking revenue away from them, but those who compete with them in the market for Support MUST do it properly. Rimini were doing it wrong, and got caught simple as ...end of!

Partnership
From what I understand, Oracle sued a company who was providing technical support to Oracle customers related to Oracle products. The reason they sued was because Rimini appeared to be a competitor in one business area, however the latter was still promoting Oracle and was involved with them. I see no reason why a partnership could not have been struck to deal with this. Oracle could have sold the rights to Rimini and eventually both would have benefitted. There must have been a gap in the market which prompted Rimini to enter.

"What would Oracle get out of a permanent injunction that it hasn't already won?"

@Charlie: Could it be a way to send off a message to other companies who are likely to be already doing What Rimini did or may be planning to do so? I don't agree with the approach but that may be one of the reasons they are doing this.

Perhaps having an injunction would allow for greater damages in the event there's need for further litigation, which Oracle seems quite happy to pursue.

Necessary legal step or sending a message to the crowd?
What would Oracle get out of a permanent injunction that it hasn't already won? Is this a serious legal maneuver or playing to the crowd coming to Oracle OpenWorld?
