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.

"last week's ruling that Novell, and not SCO, controls the copyrights covering UNIX"

Put it all into OIN and under the GPL. = put all the UNIX copyrights the court declared your's last week in OIN and under the GPL.

Not the same thing that your discussing. If the UNIX copyright had been in OIN , then OIN would have been at the basis of the defense of everyone involved against SCO.

Novel Logo is irrelevant as it does not stipulate what is there contribution , there membership status is just as irrelevant , as it too , does not show what there contribution is. SuSe Linux is not the only portfolio/content owned by Novell , since it's not UNIX it's also irrelevant to what I offered and discussed.

"they already did."

You have completely no idea what your talking about at all , here! Do you really think that Unix copyright being made GPL as part of OIN would not be the #1 news , for MONTHS ? Do you have any idea what technology are under it ? and what it's controlling ? What it really means ? What ramification to all other OS it as ? NO ... so please , really , zip it.

GNU/Linux because of SUN both under the GPL v3 would be huge , this would be gazillion time bigger.

Most people do not yet understand why Microsoft was/is paying so much to Novel for there partnership , even do I did took your little hand and that I clearly stated that NOVELL OWN UNIX RIGHTS , everyone who was following SCO case saw it clearly even Microsoft and SCO.

Most people here cant grasp or understand the concept behind being legal and license. GNU was created because Unix Copyright where closed. If GNU/Linux and UNIX are made as one under the GPL ... There is a really big patch coming for the next release of all GNU/Linux related software and even more so in the kernel , plus tons of driver and protocol changes/additions.
