Dr. Dongxiao Yue sued two large corporations for pirating the PowerRPC software he spent years developing. Defendants admitted the software "has been copied, uncontrolled, for several years." The scale of the piracy was global and massive.

 Three months into his lawsuit, the court dismissed his case. Subsequently, the court ordered Dr. Yue to pay $219,949.90 to the software pirates. The court ordered to enforce the judgment while Dr. Yue’s appeal is pending. Because Dr. Yue does not have the money, Defendants have moved to levy his assets. On December 15, 2008, the court issued a Writ of Execution, directing the sheriff of the Alameda County to levy his property – primarily his family home and the PowerRPC software. Thus, Defendants not only plan to take the ownership of the software, but also avenge Dr. Yue by making his children without shelter in this cold winter.

The evidence of the case is so clear, yet the outcome is so unjust. If we permit such persecution to continue, allow powerful corporations stomp on human dignity, stand idle as they take people’s property and watch them inflict harm on children, the injustice will set a dangerous precedent.
Dr. Yue is man of compassion; he helped other people in tough times. In this holiday season, to help Dr. Yue's family in this time of crisis, to let his children know there is warmth of the human heart, we setup the "Support Dr. Dongxiao Yue Fund" and ask for your help. We formed the Support Dr. Dongxiao Yue Group to offer him moral and financial support, so he can continue his fight for justice and defend his rights on appeal. We ask for your participation in this just cause.

    Since 1994, Dr.  Dongxiao Yue has been developing the PowerRPC software. In 2000, Sun bought licenses for distributing 1000 copies of the PowerRPC. Unknown to Yue, Sun incorporated PowerRPC into its own products, and vastly exceeded the 1000-copy limit. In 2004, a Sun manager wrote: "we have exceeded the 1,000 distributions that we had right to." Despite its mangers' knowledge of the piracy, Sun went on to grant its customers the right to make unlimited copies of PowerRPC, while concealing the piracy from Dr. Yue. Years later, the software piracy was discovered after Sun made numerous inconsistent statements.

    On November 19, 2007, Dr. Yue filed the lawsuit against Defendants, asserting ten claims of willful copyright infringement. The next day, at a court hearing, the judge told Yue to "cease and desist" from filing any paper and forbade Dr. Yue to speak. Dr. Yue wrote a letter then senator Barack Obama for help.

Because Sun failed to file a response to Dr. Yue's complaint, on January 2, 2008, Dr. Yue filed a motion for default judgment. On January 10, 2008, the court entered a backdated order granting Sun extension.

On March 4, 2008, the court dismissed Dr. Yue's lawsuit. The court order ignored all the evidence. On August 6, 2008, a magistrate judge recommended that Defendants be awarded $219,949.90 in attorney's fees and costs as prevailing copyright defendants.

On August 20, 2008, Dr. Yue filed a motion for review of the magistrate judge's report and recommendation with twenty-nine (29) specific objections. Dr. Yue contended that awarding Defendants is endorsing software piracy. On September 5, 2008, the court declined review and ordered Dr. Yue to pay $219,949.90 in thirty days.

Dr. Yue filed motion for stay of the judgment pending his appeal, stating that losing his home in the cold winter would cause irreparable trauma to his two children. The court summarily denied his motion.

The case is now before the U.S. Supreme Court. We look forward to a just decision from the nine justices.


援助同胞岳东晓及两个孩子 的募捐活动(ENGLISH)

华人软件开发者岳东晓博士状告两家美国大公司盗窃他花费多年时间所开发的一款称为 POWERRPC的软件。区法庭仅仅经历 3个月便迅速判处岳博士败诉,判决忽略所有证据,随后命令岳东晓博士赔偿被告律师费用 20多万美元。岳博士正在积极上诉。 因为岳博士无法缴纳这笔律师费, 被告要在上诉期强制执行律师费判决。区法庭拒绝岳博士根据人道主义精神暂缓执行的申请,在 2008年1215日向 ALAMEDA县法警下达强制执行令,随时没收岳博士的财产,不但要剥夺岳博士的软件版权送给被告,而且还将剥夺他的房子,使他尚年幼的孩子在这寒冷的冬季无处栖身。
