IBM drops its patent counterclaims in SCO case in D. Utah

On Oct. 6, IBM dropped its patent counterclaims against SCO in federal district court in Utah. Eight non-patent counterclaims remain.

In August 2003, IBM claimed that SCO was violating the GPL; that SCO had improperly revoked IBM's AIX license, since it needed Novell's permission to do so; and that SCO was infringing on IBM patents with four of its products (relating to data compression, navigation of graphical menus, a "self-verifying receipt and acceptance system for electronically delivered data objects" and monitoring and recovery features in distributed/clustered systems).
