3/19 SNR II

Shortly after clicking 'Publish' on the last post, more filings from SCO showed up on PACER. Zen's got 'em, naturally. In IBM, they're playing multiple angles trying to get another bite at the apple on the spoilation-of-evidence thing. And the same old extension-of-time, overlength-memo charade in Novell.

Via El Corton, here's what it looks like when a judge gets sick of litigants demanding do-overs.

Meanwhile, there's a fun new piece at GL regarding "Addendum E to IBM's Redacted Reply Memorandum in Further Support of its Motion for Summary Judgment on SCO's Contract Claims (SCO's First, Second, Third and Fourth Causes of Action)". No, really, it's fun. Honest.

The infuriating part is diagram #2. As IBM explains, SCO's theory of derivative works implies that they also have contractual control over Blackberry devices, since BSD originated from AT&T's Unix, and TCP/IP originated with BSD, and now Blackberries have TCP/IP too.

I don't know about the rest of you, but SCO can have my BB when they pry it from my cold, dead hands.

Oh, yeah, the same theory would make SCO the sole owner of the interwebs, too. Sure, Darl. Good luck with that.
