Have you discovered The Alexandria Project?
First, though, some ground rules and disclaimers: This blog entry is not based on access to the detailed documents summarized in the 8-K. As a result, what I am providing are my assumptions based on typical deal practice as I have experienced it. This means that this blog entry absolutely does not represent legal advice to anyone – and especially not to any Novell stockholder that may be considering whether or not to vote to approve the transactions discussed below, or to buy or sell Novell stock in the meantime.
Update: While I was writing this blog entry, Novell posted a brief notice at its Web site stating that New Novell would continue to own the UNIX copyrights. It also contains a link to a new 8-K filing with the full text of the Merger Agreement (but not the related exhibits) attached.
