SCO Loses

Remember SCO? It was the company that made a bunch of bogus claims about how Linux developers allegedly "stole code" from Unix, raised a huge fuss in the media and then went to court by suing IBM over the alleged code theft. Since then it has been involved in quite a number of lawsuits, one of which involves Novell. In the Novell vs. SCO case, Novell claimed ownership over Unix.

This week, the judge in the Novell vs. SCO case has ruled that SCO never owned any of the Unix copyrights at all. This effectively means Linux is in the clear, SCO has lost all of its Unix-related lawsuits, and they are in a huge pit of trouble now.

Goodbye, SCO. Good riddance.
