1. Groklaw Declares Victory — SCO Is Dead
The name Groklaw is synonymous with SCO. Led by Pamela Jones (PJ), Groklaw was always first on the scene as news in the SCO case was breaking, whether it was IBM, Novell, Autozone or otherwise. SCO is no longer in the news and is a zombie corporation that exists only under bankruptcy protection, so PJ has decided to declare victory, call it quits and close Groklaw.
Is her declaration of victory much like President Bush’s infamous Mission Accomplished?
Not really (but maybe). The patents that SCO was threatening the Linux community about are still floating around. Those patents have not been invalidated, although SCO’s claims of UNIX copyright ownership have been.
