SCO vs Novell - SCO claims ownership to UNIX


I recently read an article, old but still intresting:

novell.com/news/press/archive/2003/05/pr03033.html
(Sorry, cannot post url yet)


Does anyone have more information about this and how SCO responds to the letter from Novell to SCO shown in the article? Are there any code in Linux that have been copied from UNIX System V and if so, will that hurt the Linux-community?

I was not refering to a version of the Linux kernel that would be called "Linux System V" or something, but if there was some code copied from the UNIX System V as SCO claims and uses as an argument when they tries to claim ownership of Linux.

I dunno, you could always read through all of the articles on Groklaw - that way you can see a load of articles and legal pleadings. So far, SCO hasn't proved (or realy even tried to prove) that Linux has any Unix code at all.
