SCO Finally Shows its Legal Strategy Going Forward

Filed under
Legal

SCO was ordered by the judge, the Hon. David Nuffer, to tell him what claims it believes survived SCO's massive loss to Novell, in order to go forward in SCO v. IBM, and it has now done so.

Thanks to the judge's order, we finally learn what SCO has in mind, and I've emphasized part of it:

The Novell judgment has no bearing on the following claims, which therefore remain ripe for adjudication: SCO’s Unfair Competition claim (Count VI) concerning the Project Monterey joint venture; SCO’s Interference with Contract claim (Count VII), which (among other things) alleges that IBM interfered with contracts pursuant to which SCO licensed post-1995 UNIX products to third parties; and SCO’s claim for Interference with Business Relationships (Count IX), which alleges that IBM interfered with SCO’s market position and business relationships.
