SCO, Caldera, Unixware "Since they cannot show infringement of SCO Unix code, SCO now plans to challenge the 9-year-old settlement between AT&T and BSD. If it can successfully do that, then its claims that Linux contains tainted code can be substantiated. If it can't, SCO is dead meat." Says NewsForge. *Updated*

No Deep Pockets

It would be a waste of time for SCO to go after BSD. Who would you go after? The Free/Net/OpenBSD projects have next to no cash. There's no deep pockets anywhere. This article skips over the fact that SCO doesn't want to simply win a judgement; they want money and the BSD's have none. They'd spend more in court costs than they could possibly gain.
