""Vaster Than Empires, and More Slow" is a wonderful short story
by Ursula LeGuin. It has nothing to with Linux and FOSS, but I
think of the title whenever I read about SCO's latest and endless
antics. But some cases move through the courts more quickly, like
the recent Jacobsen v. Katzer decision. It took only two years and
the second-highest court in the land to affirm that the Artistic
License is indeed a copyright license, and not a contract."
