Novell is owner of Unix rights, not SCO
Jury in Utah court decides in favor of Novell

A new milestone has been reached in the battle between Novell Inc. and SCO Group about the ownership rights of the commercial Unix version.

Novell Inc. never sold ownership rights to Unix computer software code when it allowed another company to take over the servicing of the venerable server operating system used by large corporations, a jury in Utah decided Tuesday.

The verdict was a setback for The SCO Group of Lindon, Utah, which hoped a victory would help lift it out of bankruptcy and strengthen a separate case alleging IBM Corp. misappropriated Unix code for improvements that made the open-source Linux operating system run better.

I don't think I would call this a milestone. Everyone knows SCO was hanging on by a thread, and that it was just a matter of time before they were buried.

wow, so how long has SCO been beating this drum. It almost seems the only thing i've ever heard of SCO was lawsuits over unix.

Hi tegatai, Welcome to WebmasterWorld!

The last time I saw an SCO operating system working in the wild was in 1992. It is indeed amazing that they are able to survive so long, only on the base that one of their lawsuits may generate enough money to prevent their bankruptcy.
