These guys are really starting to annoy me now! SCO Announces Intellectual Property License for Linux. They even have this made up FAQ which claims:
“Q: Does everyone who uses Linux need a SCO UNIX IP License for Linux?
A: End users running Linux 2.4 or later versions for commercial purposes need a SCO IP license.”
Regardless of the outcome of the contract dispute with IBM which has not yet been resolved in a court of law. Their claim to owning some of the IP in Linux (and Novell, the real owners of the Unix copyright say SCO only have a right to license it) is not yet proven in law. How can SCO get away with this?
