Re: <nettime> Linux strikes back...


G et al
here is a link to a page I have made ...
http://mailer.fsu.edu/~mhardie/theshapeoflaw.html
I don't know how long this particular site will be up so I suggest if 
you want to read it save it. The authorities at my former campus removed 
our twiki site yesterday as it was causing studnets to speak freely! 
Anyway the paper recounts the story of the aboriginal art cases. I am 
rewriting it at present (after this flu) for publication and I now plan 
to expand and revise the final part to include reference to the Linux 
Developer v SCO case and the ideas we are throwing around in this 
discussion. Any thoughts and or collaboration are open. If any linux 
users want to pursue such a course of action it would be quite easy for 
us to adapt the legal documents in the LD v SCO case using the 
Aboriginal case (Bulun) as a precedent.
take care
Martin
