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.

A few comments.

1. Have a look at my posting history to put your claim into context.

2. Starting out a post with a sentence that includes the phrase "spread FUD" immediately reduces your credibility. It's best not to do it.

2a. When you *really* mean "fostering fear, uncertainty, and doubt", take the time to spell it out. The "FUD" acronym has been so very badly abused that it has no real meaning anymore, other than "I disagree with ${fill_in_the_blank}.

3. You don't have to have a case to sue.

4. You don't have to win a case to monetize the copyrights if someone will pay you simply to do the suing.
