Description

Press release to explain Ashton-Tate's position: "We were extremely surprised by yesterday's ruling. We were expecting the judge to hold a hearing as scheduled next Monday, Dec. 17, regarding our motion for summary judgment. "We believe the court's ruling was in error, and we are confident that our copyrights are valid. No final judgment has been entered by the court, and we plan immediately to ask the court to reconsider its ruling. If that is denied, we will immediately appeal the decision. "This ruling does not address the substantive legal issues of look and feel, language protection, or the propriety of copying those elements of software programs. " Donated by Ed Esber. 1 scanned page.
