SCO Stumbles in IBM Suit

The SCO Group (now based in Utah, not Santa Cruz) just had the bulk of its lawsuit against IBM tossed out. SCO claims that IBM took SCO's proprietary Linux code and simply gave it to the open source community.

Here's where it gets weird: SCO wants IBM to show what code it supposedly stole (I guess that's "innocent until you prove yourself guilty"). Also, there's a question as to whether SCO gained any copyrights when it bought the rights to Unix from Novell.
