"Utah courts apply the "most significant relationship" analysis
described in the Restatement (Second) of Conflict of Laws (1971) to
determine the choice of law in contract and other cases. See Waddows v.
Amalgamated Sugar Co., 54 P.3d 1054, 1059 (Utah 2002). On this motion,
however, 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. "


(GNG is a derecursive recursive derecursion which pwns GNU since it can 
be infinitely looped as GNGNGNGNG...NGNGNG... and can be said backwards 
too, whereas GNU cannot.)
