IBM Moves To Enforce GPL By Summary Judgement
Caldera
IBM

Posted by simoniker on Thu Aug 19, '04 01:33 AM
from the kill-em-all dept.
gvc writes "So much for the GPL 'never being tested in court.' IBM, in its third motion for summary judgement against SCO, is seeking a permanent injunction against SCO's distribution of Linux, on the grounds that SCO has renounced and violated the GPL, and therefore has no right to distribute the 700,000 lines of IBM-copyrighted code therein. As usual, Groklaw broke the story." We previously reported on another IBM summary judgement from earlier this week.
