HP And Hewlett Fight It Out On The Web

from the www.proxyfight.com dept

The San Jose Mercury News has an article about how the proxy fight between Walter Hewlett and Hewlett Packard, the company, has moved online – as each side has put up a website detailing their point of view. Hewlett started the process by putting up his site, http://www.votenohpcompaq.com/, which explains his point of view. HP couldn’t let that stand and put together http://www.votethehpway.com/ to show their side of things. The article quotes a professor who points out some of the differences between the sites. While Hewlett’s is mostly information, HP’s is interactive and encourages you to send the info on the site to otherrs. This suggests, according to the professor, that HP is the one who’s farther behind in this battle – since they realize they need to “campaign” for votes. Now, what would make this really fun was if HP sued Hewlett for trademark infringement for his URL.
