Novell, SCO welcome return to court over Unix copyright | NetworkWorld.com Community

John Fontana’s take on the latest UNIX lawyer full-employment-act development

Both SCO and Novell are anticipating their next day in court to settle who owns Unix copyrights after a judge Monday overturned a 2007 decision that favored Novell.

In a 54-page decision, the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals said it was reversing the 2007 summary judgment decision by U.S. District Judge Dale Kimball of the District Court for the District of Utah that Novell was the owner of Unix and UnixWare copyrights.

The case was sent back to trial.
