WSJ.com - Microsoft to Buy Unix License From SCO, Helping Campaign

WSJ.com - Microsoft to Buy Unix License From SCO, Helping Campaign "Microsoft Corp. has agreed to buy rights to Unix technology from SCO Group Inc., a boost to SCO's controversial campaign to exact royalties for a predecessor to the Linux operating system.
No financial terms are being disclosed in the deal, under which Microsoft will license SCO's Unix patents and underlying technology called source code. But Microsoft's move suggests that the software company's lawyers view SCO's patents as important, and could encourage other companies to strike similar pacts."
