Utah Firm Alleges Linux Copyright Infringement

“After three years of accusations, SCO Group has finally begun aiming a legal charge of copyright infringement toward a Linux supplier.

“The Lindon, Utah-based SCO argues, ‘SCO is the sole and exclusive owner of the copyrights in Unix…Novell has infringed and continues to infringe SCO’s copyrights by copying, reproducing, modifying, sublicensing and/or distributing Linux products containing unauthorized contribution of SCO’s copyrighted material. Novell’s unauthorized copying in its use and distribution of Suse Linux includes…the appropriation of numerous data structures and algorithms contained in or derived from SCO’s copyrighted material.'”
