SCO vs. Novell Continues

Lora Bentley

When my coworker sent me a link to this piece from The Register, her comment was, "I know you just wish SCO would just go away." Of course, I do. No, wait -- didn't SCO already go away? Apparently not. The patent litigation between SCO and Novell is like a recurring nightmare. Just when you think you've seen the last of it, it rears its ugly head again.


Cade Metz reported Monday that the federal judge overseeing the case entered a final judgment that, among other things, reiterated a previous order that SCO owes the Linux distributor more than $2.5 million. But the thing is, SCO doesn't have the money. The investors that once offered to bail SCO out of bankruptcy backed out of the deal. Metz says the judge may have finally "shoved SCO into the grave."


I want to agree, but as Metz also says, the company "has a knack for reanimation." We'll see.
