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 "groklaw.net" 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.
