This Is Why I'm Not a Lawyer

Those of you who are still following the SCO-Novell case may be interested to know that on Friday, a judge rejected SCO's request for an immediate formal ruling that could be appealed in the near future.

And in the legal blog I referenced above, author Roger Perloff makes some interesting points regarding what should and should not have come out of Novell's request for a summary judgment. I replied in the blog's comment section that this case was almost a sideline to the real one, which was SCO's assertion that Unix code had invaded the Linux source base. That has yet to be proven, or even supported with evidence.

It may be that this case will not be decided before SCO runs out of money. But it continues to point out some of the hazards involved when technology and the law collide. If there's anything more that can be said about this case, say it to me at pvarhol@redmondmag.com.
