Turning our attention back to SCO v. IBM, a nugget about errno.h and the GPL

http://www.groklaw.net

Now that the Novell sideshow appears to be finished, subject to any appeals either side might bring (or even requests for reconsideration), I think it's time to turn our attention back to the main tent, and that would be SCO v. IBM, which will be ramping up in due time.

Is SCO finally dead?

http://www.linux.com

Even though SCO has suffered another legal defeat, the company looks like it has enough willpower, if not sense, to keep its legal losing streak going.

Novell Responds to SCO's 2nd Extension Request: Please Make it the Last, Yr. Honor

http://www.groklaw.net

Novell has filed its Response to Debtors' Second Motion to Extend Exclusivity [PDF], and you could sum up its message to the court like this: Enough already, but if you do grant another extension, please let it be the last. SCO's position is that it can't file a plan until Utah reaches a decision on how much SCO owes Novell. Oh really?

Chris Sontag's Trial Testimony in SCO v. Novell (April 29 and 30, 2008)

http://www.groklaw.net

I thought it would be fun to look at Chris Sontag's testimony as a whole, instead of just covering the SCO v. Novell trial according to the particular day. Sontag was called by Novell on the first day, April 29, 2008. They didn't finish so he was back on the stand on the 30th, so I've cobbled together the relevant sections from the two day's transcripts to show you the complete performance.

Straight From The Horse's Mouth: Was SCOsource about UnixWare?

http://www.groklaw.net

SCO's new position is that UnixWare is just another interchangeable name for UNIX and that SCOsource was about UnixWare, not Unix System V, but here's some more evidence that they are not the same thing and that SCOsource was primarily about UNIX System V. In this article, I'll restrict myself to things SCOfolk used to say about what SCOsource was about. As you will see, before the Honorable Dale Kimball ruled in August that the UNIX copyrights didn't pass from Novell to SCO, SCO said SCOsource was about UNIX System V source code. Now that it's time to pay Novell for those System V licenses, SCO says they were really UnixWare licenses.

Much ado about SCO

http://www.linux-foundation.org

Much has already been made of a recent investment proposal filed by private equity firm Stephen Norris Capital Partners with the court overseeing the dwindling assets of the now bankrupt SCO Group. The story possesses all the ingredients of a sensational story: a high profile court case, an unnamed Middle Eastern investor, and a headline-grabbing $100 million dollar numbers.

The rise of the FOSS spinmeister

http://www.itwire.com

In August 2003, a little more than three months after the SCO Group had filed a lawsuit against IBM, seeking damages for alleged breach of contract, I had an email exchange with Blake Stowell, who was then the public relations manager of the former company.

The never ending story surrounding SCO's litigation over alleged copyright infringements contained in Linux as well as the copyrights to Unix has taken yet another twist: The SCO Group, currently subject to proceedings under Chapter 11, is causing a stir as details in relation to their payment obligations emerge.

Groklaw - Boies Schiller Asks Bankruptcy Court To Let It Be SCO's Special Litigation Counsel

http://www.groklaw.net

IP Innovation LLC might like to ponder this sorry tale before they agree to do any further rat-finking for Microsoft. It might also pay Novell to think long and hard about their future in the so-called Microsoft "partnership".

Did Microsoft ruin SCO?

http://blogs.ittoolbox.com

There appear to be a few parallels between what SCO did and what Microsoft is blustering about. They are both concerned about their so called ownership of intellectual property. They both threatend the suppliers and end users of Linux with lawsuits and fines. They both made deals with certain companies to exempt those companies from their browbeating.

The Media on SCO Bankruptcy

http://www.groklaw.net

I thought it would be fun to include some of the media reaction to the news of the SCO bankruptcy filing. Some of the headlines are inspired. The winner has to be "SCO files Chapter 11 bankruptcy - Seeks court protection from its own lawsuits". My personal favorite is, "SCO files for Chapter 11, threatens business as usual." There is also a funny graphic in the collection.

Frankly Speaking: Grokking SCO's Demise

http://computerworld.com

The SCO Group’s $5 billion threat against Linux is effectively finished. On Friday, Aug. 10, U.S. District Judge Dale Kimball ruled that SCO doesn’t actually own the copyrights that it was using to threaten — and in some cases, sue — Linux users.
