CedarCrestone (a former partner of Oracle) has waged a war with Oracle. They are alleging that Oracle has engaged in an “unlawful and systematic attack” against the third-party support market and has a monopoly on support revenue.
Oracle terminated CedarCrestone’s partner license last year and filed a lawsuit claiming it was providing third-party support for Oracle’s software in an illegal manner. CedarCrestone is now fighting back denying claims made by Oracle, and claiming the company has unlawfully achieved an “overwhelming monopoly share” in what otherwise would be a free market for tax and regulatory updates on its software.”
Oracle has asked for the case to be dismissed as they claim no wrongdoing. We’ll keep watch on this one as it could get interesting and keep everyone in the loop!
