 SCO-Caldera & the GNU/Linux Community

Are Linux or C++ on SCO-Caldera's IP Hit List? SCO-Caldera's Blake Stowell, MozillaQuest Magazine's (mozillaquest.com) Mike Angelo, plus Open Group's Allen Brown, Kernel.Org's Richard Gooch, and GNU's Richard Stallman discuss SCOsource intellectual property (IP) issues.

At issue are (1) SCO-Caldera claims that Linux is a derivative of SCO-Caldera's UNIX source code, (2) SCO's ownership of C++ code, (3) the impact and effect of SCO IP licensing and enforcement on the Linux community, (4) whether SCO's IP licensing and enforcement endeavors could find SCO locking horns with the GNU/Linux, Linux, free software, and open source communities, (5) what's behind SCO's IP licensing and enforcement efforts, and (6) impact of IP licensing and enforcement on SCO revenues.
