"The open source community, Novell, and IBM are breathing a collective sigh of relief after a Utah federal jury ruled that Novell -- and not SCO Group -- owns the copyrights to Unix.

SCO had sued Novell in 2004, claiming Novell owed it millions of dollars. SCO attempted to drag IBM and the entire open source community into the issue, claiming that SCO had rights to Unix code that found its way into some open source code.

It is now officially over, thank $DEITY.

Aren't sure what this is all about? A Google search will get you more than you could ever want but try starting at Groklaw.
