At long last, it's time for the main event in the long-running legal battle between The SCO Group and Novell over who owns the copyrights of the Unix software than runs many businesses computer systems. Six years after SCO sued Novell, a trial is set to begin Monday in U.S. District Court for Utah. It will determine who owns the Unix copyrights. But the trial, expected to last three weeks, may be just the prelude to an even bigger legal battle.

[I don't think one could find a more rah-rah, pro-SCO account if one tried. All I'll mention is this: this isn't the main event in the SCO v. the World saga. Keep in mind that IBM has never cared who owns the copyrights. Its position is that it hasn't infringed them, regardless of who owns them, and if you look at the list of allegedly misused code SCO filed, you would have to agree that IBM has no reason to worry, and neither does Linux. All the rest is FUD, no matter who writes it. - PJ]
