From a cusory reading of the article, one quote from Darl McBride
"It doesn't make sense. How would you transfer the product but not
have the copyright attached? That would be like transferring a book
but only getting the cover," McBride said.
This brings up the dichotomy between the way copyright is applied to
books (borrowing / lending, first-sale rights, etc.) and the way it
is applied to software. Adobe's e-book format springs to mind.
Like SCO's earlier bicycle analogy, I don't think this helps them.
