Jury Rules for Novell in SCO's Unix Suit

A federal jury found that Novell owns the rights to the Unix operating system, foiling SCO's plan to seek millions of dollars in licensing fees from companies it accused of illegally distributing its proprietary Unix code with the Linux OS. SCO, while obviously struck low by the verdict, evidently intends to forge on with its suit against IBM, which it also claims misappropriated Unix and built it into Linux.
