This bit of schadenfreude is *much* more interesting:

	"To Novell's knowledge, the 1995 agreement governing SCO's
	purchase of UNIX from Novell does not convey to SCO the
	associated copyrights," Messman said in the letter. "We believe
	it unlikely that SCO can demonstrate that it has any ownership
	interest whatsoever in those copyrights. Apparently you share
	this view, since over the last few months you have repeatedly
	asked Novell to transfer the copyrights to SCO, requests that
	Novell has rejected."
