Utah Jury Confirms Novell Has Ownership of Unix Copyrights

Great News for the Open Source and Linux User’s.

WALTHAM, MA.
30 Mar 2010

Today the jury in the District Court of Utah trial between SCO Group and Novell issued a verdict determining the ownership of important Unix copyrights.

The jury’s decision confirmed Novell’s ownership of the Unix copyrights, which SCO had asserted to own in its attack on Linux. Novell remains committed to promoting Linux, including by defending Linux on the intellectual property front.

Ron Hovsepian, Novell president and CEO, said “This decision is good news for Novell, for Linux, and for the open source community. We have long contended that this effort against Linux has no foundation, and we are pleased that the jury, in a unanimous decision, agrees. I am proud of Novell’s role in protecting the best interests of Linux and the open source community.”
