I cracked up after reading Slashdot's post on another SCO story. SCO's attorney claim the GPL is invalid. Near the end of the post is the humorous quote, "Apparently SCO is using the Chewbacca Defense. lol :-)


Update - 10 OCT 2003
Short video clip of the Chewbacca Defense

[Cartman's House] Reporter: Now on this fifteenth day of what is considered to be the most important trial of the day, Johnny Cochrane has appeared to defend capitalist records. The question now is will Cochrane use his famous Chewbacca defense? Cartman: What's a Chewbacca defense? Kyle: I don't know. Stan: It's what Cochrane used in the O.J. Simpson trial. Cartman: God damn I hate that Cochrane guy. If he was here in front of me, I'd be like hey you stupid son of a bitch you I'll I'm gonna kick you in the nuts! Kyle: I'm sure that would scare the hell out of him Cartman. Gerald (on TV): And in submission Ladies and Gentleman of the jury. You've heard the version of my client's song recorded over twenty years ago. You've heard the exact same song produced by these cheats in the past month.

Gerald: I'd say it's pretty much an open and shut case. Make the right decision. Thank you.
[He walks back to the defense table]
Gerald: We got 'em.
[Chef smiles and gives the OK sign with his hands]
Judge Moses: Mr. Johnny Cochrane, your closing argument.
Johnny Cochrane: Ladies and Gentlemen of this deposed jury, Chef's attorney would certainly want you to believe his client wrote Stinky Britches ten years ago, and they make a good case. Hell, I almost felt pity myself. But Ladies and Gentlemen of this deposed jury, I have one final thing I want you to consider.
[Walks up to a chart stand]
Johnny Cochrane: Ladies and Gentlemen, (Pulls down picture of Chewbacca) this is Chewbacca. Chewbacca is a Wooky from the planet Kishic, but Chewbacca lives on the planet Endor. Now think about it. That does not make sense.
Gerald (Whispering): Dammit.
Chef (Whispering): What?
Gerald (Whispering): He's using the Chewbacca defense.
Johnny Cochrane: Why would a Wooky, an eight-foot-tall Wooky, want to live on Endor with a bunch of two-foot-tall Ewoks. That does not make sense. But more important, you have to ask yourself what does this have to do with this case.
[Jury stares in silence]
Johnny Cochrane: Nothing. Ladies and Gentlemen, it has nothing to do with this case.
[Gerald sinks back and covers his eyes]
Johnny Cochrane: It does not make sense. Look at me. I'm a lawyer defending a major record company and I'm talkin' about Chewbacca. Does that make sense? Ladies and Gentlemen I'm am not making any sense. None of this makes sense. And so you have to remember when you're in that jury room deliberating and conjugating the Emancipation Proclamation, does it make sense? No. Ladies and Gentlemen of this deposed jury it does not make sense. If Chewbacca lives on Endor you must acquit. The defense rests.
Judge Moses: OK then
