Is IBM's Irrevocable Unix License Revocable?

Anonymous Reader writes ""What actually happens depends largely on whether SCO-Caldera can make good its claim that JFS, NUMA software, RCU, and so forth are part of SCO-owned Unix through derivate work clauses in the Unix licensing agreements."

The big dispute is going to be over interpreting the derivate works clauses. There is a pretty good discussion about this in the article. They look at the pros and cons but it looks like they think SCO will lose in the end on the derivative works dispute."
