"First, SCO doesn't own Unix's IP. The Court rules that Judge Dale Kimball overstepped his authority, to make that decision and that the question of who owns Unix should be decided by a jury, but that's not the same thing as deciding who owns Unix's IP. That question is up in the air.

"According to SCO CEO Darl McBride this decision enables the company to continue its Novell and IBM lawsuits. Not really. You see McBride no longer has any control of SCO. The day after the Federal Appeals Court made its decision, the Bankruptcy Court put SCO under the control of a Chapter 11 Trustee, Edward N. Cahn. Cahn, a former judge who has no connection with SCO's management, is now the man in charge, and his priorities have nothing to do with SCO's manic self-destructive drive to spend every dollar it can beg, borrow and steal on anti-Linux lawsuits."
