SCO Says It Will Go After Novell-SuSE

SCO could get an injunction that would prevent Utah neighbor Novell from shipping Linux, but it won't try to derail the planned Novell-SUSE merger--at
least not legally, an SCO spokesman confirmed.

"SCO is not planning to file an injunction to block the Novell-SUSE merger at this time," SCO said in a printed statement this week, denying
previously published reports that it would try to prevent the merger.

This week, Lindon, Utah-based SCO filed a statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) claiming that a non-compete clause in Novell's
1995 sale of Unix System V to The Santa Cruz Operation (SCO) prohibits Novell from shipping a direct competitor to Unix.
