Internet bad-guy, SCO has just gotten their ass handed to them.

The executive summary? SCO started running around suing every Linux vendor with a checkbook, claiming that all of them were infringing on its Unix copyrights. For a few years, they were bullying a few folks, but they started going after big names, including IBM and Daimler Chrysler. And now, it turns out- they didn't own the copyrights at all, Novell did. And SCO, who had been extorting license fees from people that didn't need to pay them, was supposed to turn over 95% of the royalties to Novell.

SCO sued people with the hopes of turning a quick buck on property it didn't own. The result?

95% of its royalties are to be paid to Novell.

And this, children, is why you shouldn't be a dick.
  • Bet they're wishing it was this kind of sc0nage instead:
