Some legal analysis on whether Microsoft-Novell deal is legal

Filed under: Uncategorized — ctrambler @ 11:02 am

LamLaw analysed the Microsoft-Novell deal on whether it is illegal and potentially, what recourse do GPL holders have. It is one of the first article that put Microsoft-Novell agreement implication on both parties GPL obligation under the microscope of a law book. Good analysis, perhaps biased towards GPL, but nonetheless, show us, the non-lawyers, on where the law stands on this issue.

Please note that LamLaw’s analysis does not constitute legal advice. Seek the opinion of your own lawyer if you want to start suing Novell and Microsoft…. and don’t forget that the two companies has the resources and had studied the issue longer than your lawyer can affort to do.
