SCO Loses UNIX Lawsuit

After 15 years of bickering between literal non-entity SCO (the company went bankrupt two years ago) and Novell, a jury in Salt Lake City has ruled that Novell owns the rights to UNIX after all. What's really rich here is that SCO is going to try to persuade a judge to give the copyrights to SCO despite the jury's ruling. So, never mind that whole jury trial that, by the way, was years in the making. SCO will just get a judge to overturn the whole thing (or try to, anyway -- we're guessing that the "company" won't be too successful). Gotta love our justice system…
