For more than a month now, SCO-Caldera has been doing some
intellectual property (IP) market posturing and saber-rattling
regarding its UNIX source code ownership and Linux. On 6 March
2003, SCO-Caldera pulled the saber out of its sheath when it filed
a legal action against IBM regarding claims involving the UNIX and
Linux operating systems. However, it now appears that SCO-Caldera's
saber is not very sharp -- just a huge nuisance.
Of the 136-paragraph Complaint filed by Caldera Systems, Inc.,
d/b/a The SCO Group, six are particularly significant regarding the
Linux kernel, the GNU/Linux operating system, and Linux
Paragraphs 74 and 82 through 86 of SCO-Caldera's Complaint
belittle and insult Linux developers, the Linux kernel, GNU/Linux,
Linux distribution providers -- in essence the entire GNU/Linux and
free software community.
