LXer: Deluded SCO CEO on witness stand: "Linux is a copy of UNIX"

Published at LXer:

Last August, the nail was poised over SCO's coffin when Judge Dale Kimball ruled that Novell never relinquished the copyrights to UNIX, but nobody really knew when it would be driven home. The decision meant that SCO could be on the hook for as much as $20 million in unpaid royalties. Not long afterwards, SCO filed for bankruptcy, but that Chapter 11 filing was only able to delay the inevitable trial to determine how much Novell was owed. That long-awaited trial began this week, and Ars was on hand to report.

Further proof that no brains are needed to be CEO. Just vast, overwhelming arrogance.
