SCO has lost the first round in its legal battle to assert intellectual rights over Linux. A federal court ruled Friday (December 5) that SCO must respond within 30 days to IBM’s demands that SCO hand over “all source code and other material in Linux… to which plaintiff has rights”. (full story)
My spin: SCO is claiming that is owns millions of lines of programming code in the popular operating system, Linux. If it does, and proves it in court it could reap a boat load of money from companies who are using its code. If it loses, it, SCO, as a company is dead.
