" Novell owns AT&T Unix, SCO bought some rights, but not "Unix" - that
" is what has/will bring SCO down in their current litigation...

who owns the former att workerbees in summit nj?  weren't they one of
the things sold to sco?

" Novell wants it's share of the revenue SCO obtained illegally selling
" source licenses it didn't own the right to sell...

this is good to hear.  otoh amazing sco's corporate lawyers could be
so inept.
