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*

Well they are going after BSD because they believe there is BSD code in Linux. They need to invalidate the settlement to show that IBM owes them.

Therefore they want IBM and others money not non-profit BSD's money, but BSD is a necessary target to achieve those goals.
