The only thing FIDE could muster up by way of any charge against Rajlich is a warning !
Apparently , they also weren't convinced he had code copied Fruit. I would imagine the warning is based on the lack of explicitly giving credit to those he borrows idea from ; and, that incident over Crafty. At least that would be my take.
Let's look at Dr. Robert Hyatt's response to the FIDE Ethics Commission rulings and to FIDE in general.
> The only thing FIDE could muster up by way of any charge against Rajlich is a warning !
The complaint was made by Rajlich against the ICGA. And it was the ICGA that was given the warning.
This is not rocket science.
Okay! FIDE clarified that the "alleged" ethical breaches of misconduct were strongly suggested.
Breaches of misconduct were validated.
Indicating a strong bias in the ICGA inquiry. Borne out by the fact that ""no"" copied Fruit code was found. Only the Crafty issue.
The most that they could have done "is" given Rajlich a "warning". Juxtaposition that against the FIDE response against the ICGA!
Learn to read between the lines.
> And it was the ICGA that was given the warning.
Of course !
FIDE doesn't have jurisdiction over what the ICGA does over its internal matters.
But FIDE does know its own rules and its own "ethical" boundaries, and is smart enough to know how to penetrate into issues like this one.
It doesn't matter if that issue has its basis internally in a club like that of the ICGA.
Ethically issues know no boundaries!
No club is exempt from being challenged for its unethical behavior in any sport. Perhaps , Dr. Hyatt needs to become acquainted with that fact.
> FIDE doesn't have jurisdiction over what the ICGA does over its internal matters.
If the ICGA accepts this to be the case, then it has no claim to calling any event the "World Computer Chess Championship".
> If the ICGA accepts this to be the case, then it has no claim to calling any event the "World Computer Chess Championship".
Just to elaborate on your point, Dr. Hyatt's penchant for falling back on the argument that the ICGA is a private club, that can make its own rules. Then just as quickly turn on a dime- claiming on other hand that the IGCA is steward over the entire computer chess community having the authority to crown the next world computer chess champion is amazing. Talk about inflated ego!
