Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"SCO's ex-CEO's brother, a lawyer named Kevin McBride, has
finally revealed some of the UNIX code that SCO claimed was copied
into Linux. Scroll down to the comments where it reads: 'SCO
submitted a very material amount of literal copying from UNIX to
Linux in the SCO v. IBM case. For example, see the following
excerpts from SCO's evidence submission in Dec. 2005 in the SCO v.
IBM case:' There are a number of links to PDF files containing UNIX
code that SCO claimed was copied into Linux (until they lost the
battle by losing ownership of UNIX)." Many of the snippets I looked
at are pretty generic. Others, like this one (PDF), would require
an extremely liberal view of the term "copy and paste.""
