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.

Then I take it you have never seen any of the documents exchanged between Novell and Caldera/tSCOg wherein Novell explicitly denied the validity of all claims to any IP not actually written or subsequently purchased by the Gang That Couldn't Sue Straight.

There was never any question about Caldera not owning stuff that they never bought from the Santa Cruz Operation to begin with and Novell slapped them hard with notice of that fact from the very beginning. However, faith frequently overrides reason. That is it's advantage over rational thought: It can accomplish miracles that violate the rules of the mundane world.

YMMV
