IBM drops patent claims against SCO

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 10:30 am

IBM has dropped its three remaining claims of patent infringement in a lawsuit against the SCO Group, which originally sued Big Blue in March 2003 over claims it broke a Unix licensing contract by moving technology to Linux.

The move is a piece of good news for SCO, whose suit so far has been met with skepticism by the federal judge overseeing the case.

In a court filing Thursday, IBM said it dropped the claims to speed the case and try to curtail the number of depositions SCO seeks, and added the potential monetary rewards are slim.
