SCO Says Jury Didn't Really Mean What It Said... And Judge Should Order Novell To Hand SCO Unix Copyrights

from the good-luck-with-that dept

SCO really is quite the zombie of a company, isn't it? It just never dies. It's been a month since getting smacked down yet again and having a jury declare that Novell still owns the Unix copyrights, and they were never transferred to SCO (after a judge had already said the same thing). And yet, as Slashdot alerts us, SCO has now told the judge he should order Novell to hand over the copyrights anyway. Talk about getting desperate. When will SCO finally be put out of its misery?

    SCO's dead, it just won't lie down

    And won't be allowed to till the lawyers get paid. Not as cynical cause that legal team didn't come cheap.

    But let's see now. FOSS is doing nicely having shrugged it all off. SCO caused the birth of Groklaw and PJ, both of which we really need to thank them for. SCO is on it's way to becoming a case study in how a company can't die gracefully and how to become a laughing stock on the way.

    I'm sure MS wishes this thing would just all go away.

    For all the fodder it's provided Mike over the years I'm sure even he wished it would just go away too.

    But it won't! Not quite a zombie, not quite alive, the disembodied of Daryl shrieking "I OWN LINUX!" at night.
