Owning UNIX

It turns out that SCO does not own UNIX (R). And according to The Open Group, who does own the registered trademark “UNIX”, SCO openly says so on their products and licenses.
The Open Group holds the trademark and owns the Single UNIX Specification in trust for the whole industry. As you check out the site you will find more information and an old backgrounder on the now almost forgotten lawsuit by SCO against IBM. (SCO owns the source code for UNIX, and this IP what is at the core of the suit.)
