Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

As a publicly traded company, SCO has a fiduciary responsibility to protect our intellectual property and pursue legal recourse if it has been infringed. SCO's intellectual property is being found in Linux. As a company, we have been forthright with Linux end users to help them understand the gravity of these intellectual property violations. On November 18, SCO announced that it had expanded its relationship with David Boies of Boies, Schiller and Flexner to represent SCO in end user lawsuits, which the company indicated would begin taking place by the middle of February 2004.

The actions of these vendors today doesn't change the fact that SCO's intellectual property is being found in Linux. Commercial end users of Linux that continue to use SCO's intellectual property without authorization are in violation of SCO's copyrights. SCO continues to publicly show evidence of this infringement. We invite interested parties to view some of this evidence for themselves at www.sco.com/scosource.

"If vendors feel so confident with the intellectual property foundation under their massive contributions into Linux, then they should put their money where their mouth is and protect end users with true vendor-based indemnification," said Darl McBride, president and CEO, The SCO Group, Inc.
