Wang Laboratories Inc has been ordered by the US District Court in San Francisco to suspend higher prices introduced in April on the VS operating system when it is licensed for use on used VS machines. The court order was delivered pending full trial of a suit brought by Wang reseller TSJ Inc of San Diego, which claims that the new pricing is anticompetitive and has hurt TSJ’s business. TSJ president Scott Somit told the Wall Street Journal, This policy has not only stopped TSJ dead in the water, but has also stifled all of the other resellers of used Wang Equipment. Wang said it raised prices for operating system licences on used VS machines and on upgrades to bring them fully into accord with standard industry practices and to reflect the value of the software. TSJ is asking the court to order Wang permanently to revert to the prior schedule of operating software licence fees.
