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.

Incorrect.

The GPL is irrevocable in USA as well as EU. All countries participating in EU allows for irrevocable licenses.

You cannot REVOKE the GPL license - with ONE exception: If the Person violates the GPL license you can revoke it - but ONLY if the Person is violating the license.

I know you don't understand this as is evident from your postings on wikipedia, but when you allow somebody to use your work _forever_ as long as they follow the license then you cannot revoke the license unless it is broken.
