SCO rises from the dead (again)
New trial, please

SCO has risen from the grave. Again.

On June 10, US judge Ted Stewart ruled that Novell does indeed own the
UNIX copyrights the The SCO Group so vehemently laid claim to, ending a
six-year legal battle between the two. But, yes, SCO has now appealed
Stewart's judgment, according to those dogged SCO-watchers at Groklaw.

Though Stewart upheld a jury decision in favor of Novell and rejected
SCO's application to have the case reheard, SCO has now asked the
United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit to hear the case
and overturn Stewart's ruling. And if that doesn't happen, SCO wants,
yes, a new trial.

I think I'm getting motion sickness.
