The Courts
Caldera
IBM
Posted by timothy on Fri Sep 17, '04 02:28 PM
from the hey-they've-been-trying-to-tell-you-that dept.
Mick Ohrberg writes "As reported by Groklaw, Randall Davis, renowned professor of Computer Science at MIT has after an extensive search found no evidence of SCO's claims that IBM has incorporated parts of the Unix System V code. Davis says "Accordingly, the IBM Code cannot be said, in my opinion, to be a modification or a derivative work based on the Unix System V Code." Surprised, anyone?"
