    Default Final Judgement SCO is history

    The last nail is in the coffin.

    Judge Kimball determined that SCO was subject to a contract with Novell, which it violated by lifting SVRX confidentiality provisions in a licensing agreement with Sun. This move exceeded the authority granted to SCO under the terms of a 1994 asset purchase agreement that enabled SCO to sell limited SVRX licenses to third parties on behalf of Novell. Judge Kimball also determined that SCO breached its fiduciary duty by neglecting to remit the requisite portion of the licensing revenue to Novell.

    SCO did the only thing they could to rescue itself; sue its way out of bankruptcy. They failed. Good riddance.

    Yeah, it is a real shame they couldn't actually do anything useful. Perhaps if they actually made software people wanted to use it wouldn't have gone this way... XD I can't keep a straight face saying that.
