Groklaw's Project Monterey Articles, 2003-2010

One of the SCO claims in the SCO v. IBM litigation related to Project Monterey, which SCO first mentioned as an issue in the first Complaint it filed in Utah state court when it still called itself Caldera and then in its Amended Complaint in July 2003 in federal District Court and its 2004 Second Amended Complaint, the final version. It has been a major theme in the case. In late 2004, SCO petitioned the court to file a proposed third amended complaint to add further elements regarding its Project Monterey allegations, claiming to have discovered new information, but the court denied their request.

This page is a collection of all the Groklaw articles that mention Project Monterey, in which we methodically examined and debunked the SCO claims. If you read all the articles, the filings, and the transcripts of the hearings on this matter, I think you'll see why the court ruled as it did. The SCO v. IBM litigation is currently on hold because of SCO's Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing. If and when it ramps up again, here's what each party thinks remains in the case after the August 10, 2007 decision in SCO v. Novell that Novell retained the UNIX and UnixWare copyrights when it sold its UNIX and UnixWare businesses to Santa Cruz in 1995. SCO believes an unfair competition claim survives regarding Project Monterey, but IBM disagrees, so the Project Monterey story is not yet at its end.
