SCO v. Novell Goes To the Jury 67

Excelcia writes "Closing arguments in the six and a bit year old slander of title case between SCO and Novell occurred today and the case is finally in the hands of the jury. It's been an interesting case, with SCO alternately claiming that the copyrights to UNIX did get transferred to them, and that the copyrights should have been transferred to them. 'Judge Ted Stewart said, after the jury left to begin to deliberate, that in all his years on the bench, he's never seen such fine lawyering as in this case.' We're not going to find out the results until at least Tuesday, however, as one juror is taking a long weekend. Great lawyering notwithstanding, we can all hope next week that the Energizer bunny of all spurious lawsuits will finally go away."

Submission + - Asimov's "Foundation" - a movie?

psydad writes: ""Columbia won an auction late Thursday for screen rights to 'Foundation' Isaac Asimov's ground-breaking sci-fi trilogy. The project will be developed as a directing vehicle for Roland Emmerich." Link here: http://www.variety.com/article/VR1117998687.html?categoryid=1236&cs=1
I don't know — "The Lord of The Rings" series — IMHO — turned out alright, "Do Androids dream of electric sheep?" was passable, but "I, Robot" slacked badly as have many book to movie attempts. What say you?"
