Submission + - Predicting SCO's Actions Post Bankruptcy (

eldavojohn writes: SCO lost last year and began the bankruptcy filings a long time ago but PJ has some speculative bad news on what they retain through the bankruptcy proceedings. In their filings SCO says they retain "their litigation and related claims against International Business Machines Corporation, Novell, Inc., AutoZone Corporation, Red Hat and certain Linux users which are not material customers of UnXis (excluding certain large-scale users of Linux servers) that are claimed to have infringed against UNIX copyrights." So that's still a possibility they could go after anyone who is a "certain Linux user." Maybe just the possibility of that and their ability to send threatening letters will serve their master's purpose? And what's even worse is that they'll retain a patent for running multiple Java applications on a single Java virtual machine. We may not be out of the SCO litigation woods yet.
