Who pays IBM costs...
Authored by: Anonymous on Saturday, June 29 2013 @ 06:31 PM EDT
The infusion of money that SCO got from (whoever that consortium of unidentified
class objects were)... If I remember correctly, that infusion was on the
condition that the litigation would continue, correct?

If the costs are something that SCO cannot pay in the end (as in, could SCO even
pay back the money converted from Novell?), couldn't the court order that the
reparation to IBM be charged to that group of "investors?" It is
them, after all, that have pulled the strings to continue the litigation.

Just something I've been wondering. I, for one, hope that this goes into
sanctions and holding the people responsible... well... responsible.

I'm getting the impression that there are problems (cr)(h)ackers in the legal
world as well as in the technical one. We need legal-crime laws that parallel
in proportion to cyber-crime laws. Hah! What a great parallel THAT would be in
both universes! :)

Who pays IBM costs...

I can see IBM moving for a copy of that contract and picking it apart.
Lawyers who are deliberately "economical with the actualité" and
careless of their clients interests may at times make errors which the cannier
can exploit :)
It would do wonders to the US justice system for SCO's attack dogs to have to
pay all IBM's costs.
