Legal: Dr. Randall Davis: I Found No Identical or Similar Code (SCO vs IBM)

"Here is Dr. Randall Davis of MIT's second Declaration, PDF and text. If you had any lingering doubt as to whether SCO might have found some infringing code, I think this will dispel it. Dr. Davis looked at all the code Sandeep Gupta listed as allegedly infringing, and this world-famous expert concludes thus:
"Despite an extensive review, I could find no source code in any of the IBM Code that incorporates any portion of the source code contained in the Unix System V Code or is in any other manner similar to such source code. Accordingly, the IBM Code cannot be said, in my opinion, to be a modification or a derivative work based on Unix System V Code."
This is a paper document, scanned in. It was attached in a binder, so the scanner had quite a time of it. I hope you can make it out. I left out the table, because I am still coding it, and I will add it in when I am done, but when I read this declaration, I found it so thrilling, I wanted to share it immediately with you. I note the date of this document is August, I think the 13th, though I can't make out the date clearly. That's approximately how long SCO has known that they had nothing, according to Dr. Randall Davis. SCO 3rd quarter teleconference was August 31."
