Novell and Ximian We were well aware that Novell had put itself on the market, coyly winking at passers-by, displaying its... Assets. VMware was a contender, but things have played out entirely different: Novell has been bought by Attachmate Corp., with a Microsoft-led consortium buying unspecified intellectual property from Novell.

Um, what was RMS right about?
If the assets in question were sold by one corporation to one or more other corporations, then that means that they were already owned by a corporation. Meaning, it already was the case that the assets in question weren't public domain.
