Re: [ossig] Other open source projects
Ah, but that would not be the end of their misery! If the
GPL was invalid because it's "unconstitutional" (highly unlikely, but
we'll assume so for the case of this argument), the ownership of the
Linux kernel is *still covered by conventional copyright law*. Linus
Torvalds, Andrew Morton, Alan Cox, and a whole plethora of other people
*still own the copyright on that code* and thus SCO has no right to
distribute it at all except via provisions of the GPL (which in our
assumption for this scenario is "invalid").
Okay, and their only possible way out of this misery, would be a finding
that declares the GPL unconstitutional from the beginning. Therefore
this is what they try.
The judge has decided SCO has no evidence as yet. On IBM's side is
Brian Kernighan who testified that he found no such infringement as SCO
In short, Darl is very, very screwed.
In the end, we'll get the last laugh yet.
