Posted: August 12, 2007 in Tech

Novell owns the Unix and UnixWare copyrights, according to a 102-page summary judgment issued by federal judge Dale Kimball hearing the SCO v Novell case for slander of title.

Novell owns the UNIX SVRX and UnixWare copyrights; Novell has the right, at its sole discretion, to direct SCO to waive its claims against IBM and Sequent; and SCO owes Novell payment for the UNIX SVRX licences it sold to Microsoft and Sun.
