Darl McBride and SCO are suing FreeBSD:
SCO and the USL vs. BSDI Lawsuit
A SCO press release says: "As part of the expanded scope, the firm has
been engaged to support SCO regarding issues relating to copyrighted
UNIX code incorporated into Linux without authorization or appropriate
copyright notices. Code that has been identified includes Unix System V
code as well as copyrighted code included in the 1994 settlement between
Unix Systems Laboratories, Inc. and Berkeley Software Design, Inc."
Why is SCO suing BSD?
by Chris Coleman
SCO recently announced that it would be suing BSD. However, there are a
few issues to suing BSD. It's not quite as easy as suing Linux. There
are no Fortune 1000 companies. No three billion dollar clients they can
go after. The biggest company that owns any BSD code is Wind River.
Hmmm.. Maybe they are big enough to be a target.
