SCO, Caldera, Unixware SCO has published a statement after the court ruling in their case against Novell: "The company is obviously disappointed with the ruling issued last Friday. However, the court clearly determined that SCO owns the copyrights to the technology developed or derived by SCO after Novell transferred the assets to SCO in 1995." And at the end: "Although the district judge ruled in Novell's favor on important issues, the case has not yet been fully vetted by the legal system and we will continue to explore our options with respect to how we move forward from here."

This is a copyright case, NOT a patent case. They aren't alternative names for the same thing, they are different.

For example Europe does not recognise software patents.
It does however recognise copyright.

However, they are obligated by international law to respect patents from other countries.

Well, it's copyrights. SCO didn't loose any copyrights they owned. No code was forced into public domain. So I'm not seeing how this is a win for copyright haters (or patent haters for that matter).
