I agree. I do not think anything in the IBM case will settle any of this. SCO's
trouble in this case is that they have nothing to go on but assumptions. That's
the only area I think the IBM and Novell cases can hurt them in this case. Their
credebility is pretty much ruined if both IBM and Novell prevail. I do not think
any judge would be willing to grant them much room to manouver after a loss in
IBM and Novell. So if they have nothing more then presumtions and vague ideas I
do not think they will get very far.

Read the TSG submission again - this is (or rather is claimed to be) about OpenServer libraries and hence is nothing to do with the SVRX copyrights

Read it a third time. All four of the copyrights allegedly infringed are SVRX: TX 5-750-268, TX 5-763-235, TX 2 611-860, and TX 2 605-292. (TX 5-763-235 is not a valid registration number and is presumably a typo for TX 5-762-235).

The TX 5 registrations are for "UNIX SYSTEM V RELEASE 3.2" and 4.2, and the TX 2 registrations are for SVR3.2 reference manuals.

The Complaint Is NOT About OpenServer

I took your advice and re-read the AutoZone Complaint. In fact, this is not about OpenServer at all. Nowhere in the entire document is the term "OpenServer" used. Not once. The Complaint is (at least officially) all about System V and UNIXware.
