SCO, Caldera, Unixware IBM won a tactical victory Friday in a legal battle with SCO Group when a judge ordered SCO to show within 30 days the Linux software to which it believes it has rights and to point out where it believes IBM is infringing.

Thanks for the answer, but that leads to another question.

You stated,

"But that's not what SCO is going for. They want to play the card that if there is infringing code in the kernel, the whole kernel now belongs to SCO, even if they remove the infringing code."

Isn't that kind of like saying: While they weren't looking SCO think IBM stole one of SCO's books and stuck the book on the back seat of the downtown transit bus, which belongs to the public, so, now, SCO gets to keep the whole public owned transit bus.

Isn't that about the same scenario?

I'm just trying to understand the reasoning behind this. Thank you.
