Groklaw – Court Rules: Novell owns the UNIX and UnixWare copyrights! Novell has right to waive!
Hot off the presses: Judge Dale Kimball has issued a 102-page ruling [PDF] on the numerous summary judgment motions in SCO v. Novell. Here it is as text. Here is what matters most:

[T]he court concludes that Novell is the owner of the UNIX and UnixWare Copyrights.

That’s Aaaaall, Folks! The court also ruled that “SCO is obligated to recognize Novell’s waiver of SCO’s claims against IBM and Sequent”. That’s the ball game. There are a couple of loose ends, but the big picture is, SCO lost. Oh, and it owes Novell a lot of money from the Microsoft and Sun licenses.

So glad that it’s coming to an end. Biggest waste of the court system in many years. Now let the SCO bashing begin in earnest…

If you have them already, why are you working behind the scenes to get them, Darl? Oh, yeah, I forgot, check your logic at the door when dealing with Darl’s Reality Distortion Field. Unfortunately, even with all his money, he couldn’t afford the Deluxe Reality Distortion Field with Complete Fan Loyalty Option like Steve Jobs has…
