Novell and Ximian In the wake of last week's ruling that Novell, and not SCO, controls the copyrights covering UNIX, Novell is reassuring Unix users that it has no plans to follow in SCO's footsteps. Given that the company is no longer in the business of selling UNIX, it has no reason to pursue any copyright claims.

(2) Novell have already issued everyone who wants it a license to use SuSe Linux. It is called the GPL. It is not revokable.

In some countries, perhaps. In most countries I know of (including the US and all the EU nations), the GPL is not a perpetual agreement, and can be ended when either party (owner of license or owner of IP) decides to end it.
