[Discuss] 10th Circuit Affirms in All Respects - Novell, Not SCO, Owns the Copyrights, etc.

Hash: SHA1

While SCO is effectively dead, the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals affirms
the previous judgment that Novell and not SCO owns the Unix copyrights.
"Not even Boies Schiller could save SCO. In fact, Judge Terence O'Brien,
who wrote today's decision for the panel, seems to me to have given
SCO's lawyers a bit of a spanking."

The transcript as well as Pamela in her red dress may be seen on the
Groklaw site.

While much has happened over the past year with Novell being acquired by
Attachmate. It also looks like Ralph Yarrow will not get any proceeds
from his loans. Ralph has been involved with Caldera and subsequently
The SCO Group since it was founded by Ray Noorda. the late Ray Noorda
was the founder of both Novell and Caldera. Ray Noorda's daughter ousted
Ralph Yarrow as CEO of The Canopy Group back in 2004. The Canopy Group
was the venture capital firm that Ray Noorda formed after he was ousted
from Novell. Yarrow is a real skuz who actually was able to get Utah to
pass an IP law, referred to a Yarrow's law. SCO's attorneys in the SCO
vs. IBM tried to apply this law retroactively.
