Unix licenser files for Chapter 11

September 15, 2007|From Times Wire Services

SCO Group Inc., licenser of the Unix operating system, filed for bankruptcy protection, drained by unsuccessfully filing lawsuits claiming that its software code was misappropriated by developers of the open-source Linux operating system.

The Lindon, Utah, company said it was seeking protection from creditors under Chapter 11 as it continued to license and improve Unix for corporate servers.

In August, U.S. District Judge Dale Kimball ruled that Novell Inc., not SCO, owned the copyrights covering the Unix operating system. SCO licenses Unix software for corporate servers.
