 SCO-Caldera & the GNU/Linux Community

SCO's Blake Stowell, MozillaQuest Magazine's (mozillaquest.com) Mike Angelo, and others discuss SCOsource intellectual property (IP) issues. At issue are libs owned by the SCO Group (formerly Caldera) that allow UNIX applications to run on . . . Linux."

Issues discussed: "(1) Are the subject SCO libraries . . . public domain software? (2) Are the subject SCO-Caldera libraries included in any current, major Linux Distributions? (3) What libraries are included in the SCO intellectual property (IP) claims? (4) What applications require the SCO-Caldera IP libraries? (5) What are the impact and effect of the SCO IP licensing and enforcement on the Linux community? . . . Could SCO's IP licensing and and enforcement endeavors find SCO locking horns with the GNU/Linux, Linux, free software, and open source communities? Could SCO get into intellectual property battles with Apple, Microsoft, or other UNIX providers such as HP, IBM, or Sun?"
