Hopefully, this SCO nightmare is all but over. Novell and Linux can now walk away and focus in making Linux a premier OS.
“It’s over. The jury has found that the copyrights did not go to SCO under the APA or anything else. The verdict is in. Novell has the news up on their website already, but I heard it from Chris Brown also. Here’s the brief Novell statement:
“Today, the jury in the District Court of Utah trial between SCO Group and Novell issued a verdict.
“Novell is very pleased with the jury’s decision confirming Novell’s ownership of the Unix copyrights, which SCO had asserted to own in its attack on Linux. Novell remains committed to promoting Linux, including by defending Linux on the intellectual property front.
“This decision is good news for Novell, for Linux, and for the open source community.
