Legal Today, Novell has answered SCO's complaint alledging Novell slandered SCO's ownership of the Unix copyrights. Novell claims that SCO approached Novell in 2003 to try and pursuade them to go along with the Linux Licensing Scheme. When Novell refused, SCO attempted to talk Novell into transfering the Unix Copyrights to SCO, which Novell also refused to do. Novell has also filed four counterclaims against SCO, one of them being Slander of Title (for SCO slandering Novell's ownership of the Unix Copyrights).

This is a big, gaping and a very undemocratic hole in the American constitution. Why should you have to pay for a lawsuit before the case is settled?!

You don't.

However, you do have to pay for the lawyers who argue your case, and SCO hopefully won't be able to do that, if enough companies turn on them.
