Legal: IBM Files For Partial Summary Judgment on 8thCounterclaim

From the mighty Groklaw: "Man, this just isn't SCO's week. IBM has just filed *another* Motion for Partial Summary Judgment, this one on its 8th Counterclaim, the one for copyright infringement. No, silly, not IBM copying SCO. It's where IBM says that SCO has literally copied more than 783,000 lines of code from 16 packages of IBM's copyrighted material. They are asking for summary judgment as to liability and a permanent injunction.

...SCO and friends keep floating these rumors about SCO settling or being bought up. I think IBM has other plans, like crushing SCO like a bug.

...I always said the GPL was SCO's Achilles Heel, way back from the very beginning, when I was a tiny little voice in the wilderness, and now I get to watch it play out just as I knew it could and should. I'm thinking this will be the end of the FUD about the GPL never being tested in court. That'll be refreshing not to have to hear that any more. Rest in peace, dead old FUD #1. Some of your cousins will be joining you soon in the Olde GPL FUD graveyard."
