So what are the legal implications of all of this then? If Oracle now
own the code base, are we likely to see Oracle enact a version of SCO's
attempt to claim ownership of the GNU/Linux code base 
retrospectively, this time directed against TDF and LibO?
Oracle owns the copyright of the code base, but publicly licensed it (or a
large part of it) under LGPL.
As far as future versions of LibO will be released under LGPL nobody
should reasonably be sued.
However, the international legal situation is complex like, always AFAIK,
the real legal status of the *whole* code base that, indeed, is rather
variegated, legally speaking.
I'm sure this is a main concern and priority of the TDF founders.
