Submission + - Microsoft to acquire Unix copyrights (securityweek.com)

IGnatius T Foobar writes: As part of Attachmate's acquisition of Novell, Novell announced it would sell certain intellectual property assets to CPTN Holdings LLC, a consortium of technology companies organized by Microsoft Corporation, for $450 million in cash. Since the SCO lawsuit determined that it is Novell, not SCO, who owns the Unix copyrights, this means that now Microsoft owns them. Is it time for the Linux world to brace for another round of lawsuits?
