SCO, Caldera, Unixware SCO has published a statement after the court ruling in their case against Novell: "The company is obviously disappointed with the ruling issued last Friday. However, the court clearly determined that SCO owns the copyrights to the technology developed or derived by SCO after Novell transferred the assets to SCO in 1995." And at the end: "Although the district judge ruled in Novell's favor on important issues, the case has not yet been fully vetted by the legal system and we will continue to explore our options with respect to how we move forward from here."

Sometimes? Look at what that got Darl. A worthless company being whored out.

I'm quite curious of what Microsoft has to say about the fallen for two reasons:

a) Microsoft bankrolled them through Baystar to keep up the IP fight.
b) Any money they put into SCO by licensing illegitimate IP goes to Novell, which brings to mind this scenario:

Novell is well within its rights to void any agreement made between SCO and MS relative to the IP in question, which puts Novell in a very good position at the bargaining table should MS decide to follow that route, and it would be in their best interest to do so because we all know there is some semblance of Unix in Windows just waiting to come out one way or the other.
