After four years of courtroom maneuvering, and too many attempts by The SCO Group to sneak in “evidence” and “motions” after stated deadlines, they have finally lost the keystone of their lawsuit against Novell:
[T]he court concludes that Novell is the owner of the UNIX and UnixWare Copyrights.
The case isn’t done; the lawyers will assure that. But TSG had no leg to stand on, and the court finally affirmed it.
An implicit loser in the case is Microsoft, as the primary funding source for the lawsuit.
It’s difficult to come up with two more deserving parties.
