Re: SCO's motions denied

<< Does anyone else think this is a bad thing and reeks of curruption? How the hell is SCO supposed to find code that's been copied into Linux if IBM won't give it the AIX sources? >>

Actually SCO's motions to Compel were not denied they were put on hold until January 23rd and the judge will rule on their motion to compel. The only thing that was put to rest was SCO's arguments that IBM should go first. Basically all SCO has to do is stick to the derivative works argument and they are still in the game and it will fall on IBM to provide arguments that their claims are a load of crap. SCO will get their motion to compel granted as well because what SCO is asking fo does not fall under unreasonable.As someone stated to me earlier tonight this is just the first stage of a long, long court battle. This was not an upset or anything to even get excited about.
