Staking the Vampire: SCO's case comes to an end?

Filed under
OS

Since day one of The SCO Group's lawsuit against IBM on the grounds that the corporate giant had stolen its Unix intellectual property for the betterment of Linux, SCO's opponents have shouted that there was nothing to the company's accusations.

Now, more than three years since the fight began, lawyers think that the court's recent decision to dismiss many of SCO's claims has shown that SCO's enemies were right all along.

What appears to be the real end of the case came on June 28. On that day, U.S. District Court Magistrate Judge Brooke Wells dismissed about two-thirds of SCO's claimed 294 examples of IBM contributing Unix code to Linux.

Is there anything of substance left to SCO's case? The lawyers say no.

Full Story.
