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*

"Wouldn't this mean that Microsoft would also be liable since their TCP/IP stack was based on BSD code?"

Normally yes, but remember MS has paid SCO since this all began for the "License" fees SCO asked for. With paying the "License" fee they would be in compliance so not a target.
