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*

I don't think that it is possible to reopen the AT&T/BSD lawsuit. At least that was my understanding (since only a few people actually have seens everything in writing).
I do think that IBM has a chance to stop SCO from filing more lawsuits. Companies that bought license to run Linux recently probably have a good class action lawsuit agains SCO.
I would personally try securities fraud, too.

I would like to hear their legal counsel's opinion what do thy think about their (sco and the lawyer[s]) chances of being disbarred and conviced of a felony.
