Linux has code in it from/given by SGI,IBM,Sun, taken and ported from their "UNIX" systems into Linux kernel and userland.

This is a rather bold statement. The userland part I will disregard, because it's unimportant even if true, but the kernel part is interesting. Do you think AT&T copyrighted code somehow made it in to Linux via contributions by SGI, IBM or Sun? I would be extremely shocked to learn that this was the case. Cite 'em if you've got 'em.
