The SCO Group Inc. is trying to revive the name of the AT&T
Corp. subsidiary that once owned the rights to the Unix operating
system and, in the process, stirring up controversy with the
industry group that claims ownership of the Unix trademark.
SCO has applied for a U.S. trademark on the term "Unix System
Laboratories," the Lindon, Utah, company confirmed Thursday. SCO
filed an application to register the trademark on June 21,
according to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office Web site.
"The company has filed to receive that trademark because we
believe there's some value in that. How we plan to use that
trademark in the future has yet to be determined," said Blake
Stowell, an SCO spokesman.
