For those of you following the IBM/RedHat/AutoZone/Chrysler/Open source community/whole world verses: “SCO” court case,
(and if you are not, you should be as the vast majority of the internet runs on open source software like Bind (DNS), Apache (Web server) and Sendmail/Postifx (email) not to mention Linux itself.)
Anyway, onto the story, and its a good one. First off, SCO tries to cancel IBM’s right to distribute Unix, claiming they infringed SCO’s copyright by putting millions of lines of Unix code into Linux.. In their most recent filing they have claimed that they have no copyright issue with IBM over their use, contribution or distribution of Linux, and are asking that IBM’s 10th counter claim be dismissed or stayed on that basis.
