 CBS MarketWatch reports on Novell's challenge to SCO, and quotes SCO CEO
 Darl McBride as asserting that SCO owns the Unix copyrights.  "McBride
 added that unless more companies start licensing SCO's property, he may
 also sue Linus Torvalds, who is credited with inventing the Linux
 operating system, for patent infringement."
