+ - Court Concludes Novell Owns Unix

Submitted by 1 a bee
1 a bee (817783) writes "In a new twist involving SCO's ever worsening prospects in its legal adventures, MarketWatch reports that in a case involving Novell, " the court concludes that Novell is the owner of the Unix and UnixWare copyrights."

The presiding judge has also ruled that Novell may now direct SCO Group to "waive its claims against IBM." Novell has not indicated, according to the article, whether it will do so. This is an opportunity for Novell to show its better colors. Will Novell direct SCO to waive its claims against IBM and others? Or will it try to wield this new ruling as an ax against the rest of the Linux community?"
