SCO gets $100 million bailout (call your lawyers)

Ding, dong, the witch is...alive?

Irrelevant annoyance SCO got a new lease on it's miserable life, courtesy of Stephen Norris Capital Partners (SNCP).

According to a statement from the company, SNCP already has a business plan for SCO that includes pursuing its legal claims, which in the past have named Novell, IBM and others as infringing on the company's patents.

I can't for the life of me figure out why anyone would want to keep that business alive--even for the legal claims. $100m would be better invested in almost anything else.
