Just as SCOG kept creeping out of its grave to sue someone else somewhere else, GROKLAW sprang to life long enough to store the PDF of the ruling“It is further ORDERED that, with respect to all remaining claims and counterclaims, SCO is bound by, and may not here re-litigate, the rulings in the Novell Judgment that Novell (not SCO) owns the copyrights to the pre-1996 UNIX source code, and that Novell waived SCOâ€™s contract claims against IBM for alleged breaches of the licensing agreements pursuant to which IBM licensed such source code.” by judge Nuffer. This should lay to rest the last litigation by SCOG. It has no chance, no money, probably not even an address these days and no basis in law to sue IBM over Linux. We all understood that years ago thanks to GROKLAW but SCOG, like some of the trolls here, never gave up trying. Even after its death in bankruptcy, some lawyers kept shuffling papers to use the last pennies. The tables and chairs were sold long ago. Someone bought the rights to sue and this should give them the value they deserved.
It’s nice to know that GROKLAW is not dead, just hibernating. Maybe spring will wake it up. Surely there’s some legal case interesting enough to fire it up, like world v Obamacare, or world v N. Korea, or … Of course, now that M$ loves */Linux and Apple has acknowledged that round corners are not innovative there are fewer lawsuits in the world but until all those who fought GNU/Linux for two decades die of old age, there’s still hope they will seek to humiliate themselves in the courts.
