Novell's fraud claim against SCO

At issue here are the SCO Source deals Microsoft and Sun signed-off on in 2003, which included "patents." What patents? That's what Novell wants to discover.

Novell upped the ante in the SCO vs. IBM case over the weekend, bringing up the possibility of criminal fraud charges against SCO.

And the "victims" in this case? How about Microsoft and Sun?

This suit is actually a counter-claim to a suit SCO filed against Novell last year, surrounding issues concerning Novell's sale of Unix assets to <s>Caldera Systems, SCO's predecessor, </s> the Santa Cruz Operation a decade ago.

Personally I don't like reporting this. I no longer care about the course of these civil suits. But the possibility of criminal fraud, committed against Microsoft, was just too funny to ignore. I wonder if the nation's D.A's are laughing?
