For those interested, I found this paper by the Jewish War Veterans
Association on shareholder activism:
They also target adaptec ;)
It's an interesting read. That's where my previous figure of $2k in
shares is from. Apparently, the time-frame for being noticed is long,
but things have been achieved.
Perhaps in the long-term, organizing something like a Free Software
Investment Action Fund wouldn't be so bad, I'm sure there are people who
care about the issue, hold stock in recalcitrant companies, and would
sign over their voting rights to a worthy cause.
Hell, just setting such a beastie up would probably coerce a few vendors.
Oh, and if you work for a company that's a direct competitor to adaptec,
now is probably the time to give out tons of docs and get good press.
