re: Jury: SCO does not own copyright on Linux code

Anyone think the article should be titled "Jury says SCO does not own copyright to UNIX" rather than "Jury says SCO does not own copyright on Linux"?

Re: "I'd love to hear from any Linux developers or users out there who have been tracking this case." -- Rick Merritt I develop special purpose software on both UNIX and Linux and have been tracking this case and the related disputes between the litigious SCO and numerous other companies. It has been a long process reaching this point in the case, and yet there will likely be many twists and turns yet to follow. I should note that reckless persuit of an ill-conceived policy of litigation against its customers and partners that is still being persued in the courts by the former Linux distributor SCO -- once known as Caldera -- has turned this once fine company into an industry pariah with no potential for rehabilitation. The SCO legal cases serve as examples of how NOT to do business. I agree with "betajet" regarding the award-winning journalist Pamela Jones' website "" as the best complete source of information regarding the SCO vs. the World saga. The site is unabashedly pro-Linux, but for the 7 years of SCO litigation has maintained a remarkably high level of factual integrity and completeness.

I'd love to hear from any Linux developers or users out there who have been tracking this case.
