Yet IBM talks about New York law on preambles and other prefatory
language in a contract aiding its interpretation. How come that, 
oh paragon of intellect?

"the Court need not reach the choice of law issue because Utah law 
and New York law are in accord on the issues that must be reached 
to address SCO's sole argument on this motion, namely, that SCO did 
not breach the GPL. Throughout this brief, IBM cites to both Utah 
law and New York law."
