Parent article: SCO update
Maybe it's just a worst case scenario, but yesterday a question was raised in my head: "Ok, SCO goes down, who keeps the Unix copyrights?" At first I thought there was going to be an auction or negotiation where Microsoft, Sun, IBM and SGI would attempt to buy them. But then I recalled the deals with Boies and partners. "What if they keep the Unix copyrights for themselves?" Maybe it's a bit of every geeks' lawyer paranoia, but for me it would be the worst case scenario: a litigation team, with no business whatsoever in the IT business, with strong connections to Microsoft, having the Unix copyright. Talk about a bad dream...
