SCO To File Appeal of Unix Copyright Ruling

In a move that was fully expected after its devastating loss in federal court last month, SCO has asked the court to finalize the ruling that Novell actually owns the copyright to Unix.

A judge ruled in August that Novell never sold SCO (which is actually the successor company to the original Santa Cruz Operation) the copyright to Unix System V, and furthermore that SCO owes Novell royalties on its use. Groklaw editor Pamela Jones believes that SCO is hurrying to obtain a final ruling so it can immediately appeal that ruling.

Will it never end? Give me your thoughts at pvarhol@redmondmag.com.
