Dated: Friday, August 10 2007 @ 04:52 PM EDT Hot off the presses: Judge Dale Kimball has issued a 102-page ruling [PDF] on the numerous summary judgment motions in SCO v. Novell. Here is what matters most:
[T]he court concludes that Novell is the owner of the UNIX and UnixWare Copyrights.
That's Aaaaall, Folks! The court also ruled that "SCO is obligated to recognize Novell's waiver of SCO's claims against IBM and Sequent". That's the ball game. There are a couple of loose ends, but the big picture is, SCO lost. Oh, and it owes Novell a lot of money from the Microsoft and Sun licenses. "

Novell case, saying that it is his belief that after examining the all the documentation and motion practice and after the hearings earlier this year on various summary judgment motions, the jist is: "[T]he court concludes that Novell is the owner of the UNIX and UnixWare Copyrights." Of course, Groklaw is covering the story and broke the news just over a half hour prior to this submission.
There is also a ruling in SCO v IBM on summary judgment motions but the actual rulings are yet to become available. Keep your eyes peeled."
