SCO's Future Murky Following Legal Blow

Filed under
OS

It is unclear how SCO will continue to fund its legal battles: Its cash reserves are disappearing at a rapid pace, while its losses have accelerated over the last year, in large part due to its legal expenses. If not a death knell, the dismissal of most of its claims against IBM is a major blow to its prospects.

In a ruling filed this week, Judge Brooke Wells agreed with Big Blue, dismissing two-thirds of the nearly 300 claims SCO entered against IBM.

If SCO does decide to go forward, it could still prevail in court, Toney said. Wells let stand at least one-third of SCO's claims, many of which are sealed because they reference proprietary data.

"It only takes one single assertion of copyright infringement to stop dissemination," he remarked.
