SCO, Caldera, Unixware Yahoo reports that SCO has filed [.pdf] for bankruptcy in order to protect assets. "The SCO Group today announced that it filed a voluntary petition for reorganization under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code. SCO's subsidiary, SCO Operations, Inc., has also filed a petition for reorganization. The Board of Directors of The SCO Group have unanimously determined that Chapter 11 reorganization is in the best long-term interest of SCO and its subsidiaries, as well as its customers, shareholders, and employees." Groklaw has a story on it, too.

All the GPL does is prevent theft. It's nothing more than reciprocal altruism.


I'd agree, but I would just use the term "collaboration".

The bulk of Scientific knowledge is built up by collaboration. Scientists working off each others discoveries.

The GP simply allows the same methods of collaboration applied to software development. It uses the power of copyright law to prevent anyone subverting the ability to collaborate on the software so being developed.
