Submission + - Just $699.99 for the rights to that code! (groklaw.net)

yorugua writes: Oh no!!. But yes... Surely you felt something was missing all this time, don't you? Something you checked every day on. Something that could came back to haunt you. Now it is real!. SCO has appealed. I don't speak much legalese, so here are some words from Groklaw: "Plaintiff, The SCO Group, Inc., hereby appeals to the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit from the Jury Verdict entered in this action on March 30, 2010, the district court’s evidentiary rulings at trial, Findings of Fact and Conclusions of Law dated June 10, 2010, Memorandum Decision and Order Denying SCO’s Renewed Motion for Judgment as a Matter of Law or, in the alternative, for a New Trial dated June 10, 2010, and the Final Judgment entered on June 10, 2010." . So according to IBM's ^H^H^H Goklaw's PJ, "They're appealing everything, in short, or they'd like a new trial. Because three trials isn't enough when you're not having fun. Speaking of which, I confess. I'm so sick of SCO I could spit.". So, if you got hooked up by FIFA's World Cup and were wondering what to focus your attention on, then get those $699 ready to buy your rights to that code! Or are they just buying more time?
