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*

Wrong.

It's more like saying you can't put someone on for trial for murder unless you have a DEAD BODY. Once you have "Habeus Corpus" (have the body), you can prosecute for murder.

Right now, SCO is claiming that there is a body somewhere, but are refusing to show anyone where it is. To now bring charges against someone for this is ludcrous!
