Let's Hit the Books

I have seen several websites offering legal analysis of the SCO case that are based on what I would call "How I Think the Law Ought To Be". Such arguments, moral or ethical arguments, although of value for other purposes, will have no influence on a judge, because that isn't his job. That's for the legislature. His job is to interpret what the law currently is. I apologize I have no time today to put this in any logical order.

So to help you think the way the judge will be thinking, so you can think of something or notice something that could prove helpful, here are some legal resources explaining how the law is currently.
