SCO Just Won't Give Up

Lora Bentley

Are you kidding me?


The Salt Lake Tribune reported Friday that SCO Group would like to sell some of its assets in order to continue its infamous intellectual property lawsuits against Novell and other Linux distributors. The company has apparently filed a new reorganization plan with the federal bankruptcy court. If the plan is approved, SCO's core product lines would be owned by other parties.


SCO's CEO, Darl McBride, told investors, "One goal of this approach is to separate the legal defense of [the company's] intellectual property from its core product business." President and COO Jeff Hunsaker said the litigation had distracted the company from selling products.


Please. The company is "distracted" because its leadership is focused on the wrong thing. Like a Slashdot post on the news suggested, SCO should "know when to fold 'em." Let it go, and get on with business.
