The ongoing game of "Yes we can, no you can't"
continues this week with Sprint sending off a letter to Clearwire's board. (In case you forgot, Clearwire's board has a lot of the same people as Sprint's board; really they were sending the letter to the media.) Here's the gist of it: You can't even seriously consider DISH's proposal because it breaks the law.
It's kind of funny that no one thought of that before, kind of makes you wonder if it's true. A lot of it is so far above my head that I won't even try to interpret it, but apparently Delaware law (which is important because apparently Clearwire is a Delaware corporation) says that DISH can't veto this, can't ask for that. At this point Sprint would probably say it's against Delaware law for DISH to run away with a spoon.
Anyway, if you're into dissecting this sort of stuff, have fun with the original letter at the Sprint Newsroom
