On the surface, a recent court ruling confirming that Novell Inc. has
copyright ownership of the Unix operating system would appear to be nothing
more than a case of contract law, of who owned what and when.

However, developers using open-source software with Linux are hailing the
case as an important victory in a continuing battle in the software world
over intellectual property rights, and one that could help shape the
software industry for years to come.
