A federal district judge has sounded the death knell for SCO's patent claims against Linux.
A federal jury concludes that Novell owns the rights to Linux, foiling SCO's plan to seek millions of dollars in licensing fees. But SCO isn't quite done yet.
An appeals court rules that a judge was hasty in deciding Novell didn't sell Unix copyrights to SCO Group.
Court blocks SCO's plan to exit bankruptcy and raise funds for its Unix-related lawsuits against IBM and Novell. Also, the court appoints a trustee to take control of the company.
SCO's request for a new trial is rejected, and an April decision that deemed Novell the rightful owner of key Unix copyrights is upheld.
Probably not. But we have heard the last from this podcast. In our final edition, we cover the end of SCO's lawsuit with Novell, Conficker lives on after a year, and what won't be available when Apple's iPads get delivered this weekend.
Chris Stone claims that Novell is "changing its stripes" to be "more partner-friendly, developer-friendly and now Linux- and open source-friendly." He talks exclusively with Dan Farber in a Face to Face interview about acquiring open-source developer Ximian and the latest twists in SCO's battle with Linux users.
A month after a devastating legal ruling, The SCO Group says it's filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection while it reorganizes, and all its court cases are on hold.
Business as usual for SCO? Let's hope not.
SCO is a nettlesome weed, but at least it's being made to pay.
