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.

[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.


This is very true. And if the GPL was a perpetual license, then that statement would apply.
