This seems to show that IBM has been very careful by going back to original code that predates this project or was unused (JFS came via OS2). Second, the terms of the Project Monterey contract needs to be made public, especially if exclusive rights of code were made. Otherwise there is nothing stopping Sequent and/or IBM from providing the code to two different places under two different licenses. This would mean that SCO doesn't have a case with this code and only can show that IBM may have used knowledge gained to improve this code. But, as pointed out by the NZheretic article, IBM can also claim the same.
