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.

Those Guys Are Not Lawyers.

Enthusiastic support is not a legal precedent nor a historical recapitulation. However even a false premise may be followed by a true conclusion and I am equally certain that Open Solaris is in no danger from any legal claims any more than IBM or Novell were in danger from Caldera's wild-eyed and baseless claims. It still cost them lots of time and effort to defend against them though. I suspect that their defensive actions will extend to protect Sun should any others contemplate similar actions.
