Novell won a software copyright trial against SCO Group on Tuesday, ending a seven-year war that ignited the religious passions of open-source programmers. Represented by Morrison & Foerster and Workman Nydegger, Novell persuaded a Utah federal jury that Novell -- and not SCO -- owns the rights to the Unix operating system. "It was really the first suit, and I think to date one of the only suits, about an open source being infringing," said Heather Meeker, an open-source expert at Greenberg Traurig.
