Kapitel II: 11.0 Der Schwaben-Streich



Hoch über San Francisco war Gary B. Friedman high. In seinem dekorierten Nobel-Büro (Eternit-EDV-Chef Alfred Tauchnitz: "'ne dufte Stube") im 32. Stockwerk des Embarcadero Centers nagelte er die Farbfotografie eines Schecks in die kostbare Tapete. Die Vernissage fand ohne den Aussteller statt.
Grund des Happynings war die IBM Deutschland. Sie hatte dem ITEL-Mitgründer Friedman (ehedem IBM-District-Manager in Frisco) 80.000 Mark Bußgeld übersandt.
Der Bußgeldbescheid gegen IBM wurde nicht vom Obersten Gerichtshof der USA ausgefertigt, sondern vom Landgericht Stuttgart. Der Anlass waren 32.000 Bytes, die der schwäbische Klett-Verlag am 22. August 1972 bei ITELs Deutschland-Filiale angemietet hatte. Monatsmiete: 4.500 Mark. Grund für die Anmietung war nicht der günstige Preis. Das Angebot von ITEL versetzte Klett in die Lage, das von der IBM angemietete System /360-30 aus einer Speicherklemme zu befreien. Ab 64 K ging bei IBM nichts mehr. ITEL lieferte und installierte den Speicherausbau auf 96 K. Daraufhin ging bei Klett nichts mehr.
Mit Schreiben vom 14.12.1972 hatte die IBM Geschäftsstelle Handel und Dienstleistung (Unterschrift: i.V. Stulle) kurz und bündig mit, dass die Wartung "des unveränderten Teils der Zentraleinheit im Rahmen der den Technischen Außendienst der IBM Deutschland zur Verfügung stehenden Mittel praktisch nicht möglich" ist. Damit verbunden war die Aufforderung, die Änderung zu entfernen und den ursprünglichen Zustand der Maschine wieder herzustellen..., um damit das Mietverhältnis mit uns fortsetzen zu können."
Klett spielte den Ball zu ITEL und forderte in einem Schreiben vom 29. Dezember 1972 (Unterschrift: Dr. Reichel) "im direkten Kontakt mit der IBM-Geschäftsstelle Stuttgart sicherzustellen, dass eine Wartung der von uns gemieteten IBM-Maschine /360-30 sichergestellt wird."
Der Deutschland-Vertriebsmanager von ITEL, Jürgen Selig, machte kurzen Prozess und ging vor den Kadi. In einem dreißigseitigen Schriftsatz wurde die IBM beschuldigt, "als marktbeherrschendes Unternehmen" einen Mitbewerber "unbillig behindert zu haben". Vorläufiger Streitwert: 160.000 Mark. Forderung der ITEL-Anwälte: der IBM dieses Vorgehen per einstweiliger Verfügung zu verbieten. So geschehen am 4. Januar 1973.
Einen Tag später entsprach die 3. Kammer für Handelssachen des Landgerichts Stuttgart (Vorsitzender Richter Dr. Becker) dem ITEL-Ansinnen.
In der einstweiligen Verfügung (Aktenzeichen 3 KfH 04/73 Kart) wurde angeordnet, die Wartung bei Klett fortzusetzen, für jeden Fall der Zuwiderhandlung drohten Geödstrafen in unbeschränkter Höhe, mindestens jedoch von 500.000 Mark.
Erstmals wurde in der Bundesrepublik Deutschland gerichtlich fixiert, dass die IBM "marktbeherrschendes Unternehmen im Sinne des § 26GWB" ist. Gleichzeitig wurde ihr "Diskriminierung im Sinne des § 26 Abs. 2 GWB" bescheinigt.
Das war für IBM zuviel. Der Vergleich kam so schnell wie der Prozess.
Das Ganze war mehr Show als Business. Die IBM spielte die Angelegenheit gegenüber ihren Kunden auf eine niedrige Managementebene hinunter, ITEL-Manager Selig kassierte zwar jede Menge Schulterklopfen, geschäftlich gab's aber eher Nackenschläge. Den Löwenanteil des Bußgeldes strichen die Anwälte ein.
