Novell Files Motion for Preliminary Injunction Against SCO

Filed under
Legal

Every time I almost finish the Ralf Flaxa Declaration as text, more filings, and again here we are with boatloads of filings in both SCO v. IBM and in SCO v. Novell. I'll show you the Pacer text, and I'll get the filings up as soon as I can.

Some news. First, the big news is, Novell has filed a Motion for Partial Summary Judgment or Preliminary Injunction [PDF] -- here's the Memorandum in Support [PDF]. Woo ha! Novell wants its money from the Microsoft and Sun Microsystems licenses. And IBM adds a lawyer to the team, Roger G. Brooks, a litigator, another partner at Cravath, like Marriott. Here's what Novell is asking for:

For the foregoing reasons, Novell respectfully requests that this Court grant partial summary judgment as to Novell's Sixth, Seventh, Eighth, and Ninth Claims for Relief and impose a constructive trust on the monies SCO received and improperly retained from the 2003 Sun and Microsoft Agreements. If summary judgment is denied, Novell requests in the alternative that this Court issue a preliminary injunction requiring an accounting and establishing a constructive trust.

Those claims would be for constructive trust, breach of fiduciary duty, conversion, and accounting, respectively. Is this fun or what?

Full Story.

  • SMS based Cosmos Browser for the developing countries
    Browsing the internet has different meaning to different people. While to some the web is a source of entertainment, to others it is a valuable and source of learning. Sadly enough, the internet is not widely available and easily affordable everywhere in the globe. Slow network speed is another problem. Developer Stefan Aleksic of ColdSauce tries to find a solution in an SMS (text) based browser for the third world countries which are yet to see the internet as we know it. He has named it the Cosmos Browser. If you ever used elinks on Linux, you know how efficient and low-bandwidth text only browsing can be. Of course, it is not meant for visiting a website for downloading wallpapers, but it is more than sufficient if you want to read some information from the web. Cosmos will work on text and will not need any data plan or WiFi.
