Techweb: Judge Clarifies Microsoft Injunction

Thanks to Amos Shapira for this link.

“The court clarified that its preliminary injunction does not
restrict Microsoft’s distribution of any Java technology that makes
no use of and is not derived from any of Sun’s copyrighted
material,”

“In other words, Microsoft is free to sell Java tools that it
built itself without help from Sun’s Java code, something that Sun,
based in Palo Alto, Calif., had wanted to prevent. The ruling left
unresolved what exactly constitutes an independently derived
product, leaving room for Sun to take additional steps.”
