 SCO's Rebuilt IBM Lawsuit

There are lots of holes in SCO's IBM lawsuit claims. MozillaQuest Magazine (mozillaquest.com) reports The SCO-Caldera v IBM lawsuit pretty much boils down to a dispute over whether the IBM-developed AIX, JFS, RCU, and NUMA software code IBM contributed to the Linux kernel is derivative work and under the Unix Product Software umbrella. If the code IBM contributed to the Linux kernel is derivative work and thus comes under the Unix Product Software umbrella, then the Unix license prohibits IBM from disclosing that code and the related methods, secrets, and know-how and SCO wins the SCO v IBM lawsuit. If not, and likely it does not, IBM wins.
