He he.

I like footnote 9 about New York law on preambles and other pefatory
language in a contract aiding its interpretation. :-)


IBM argues throughout its MEMORANDUM IN OPPOSITION that the GPL license is a contract.

For example IBM argues forcefully at footnote 8 on page 22:

"SCO's statement. . . [N]ot only flies in the face of the unambiguous language of the GPL and standard rules of contract interpretation. . ."

Does this mean that the esteemed Eben Moglen, RMS and his faithful disciples have simply been blathering reams of FUD when claiming that the "The GPL is a License, Not a Contract"?
