Scox's earning are going to be disasterous. Scox desperately needs a distraction so that investors don't worry too much about earnings. Investors are supposed to think: "Forget about this quarter's earnings, now that scox has this solid evidence, all these companies are bound to pay scox for linux licenses."

Of course there is no real evidence, but few investors/traders are very technical. Scox has brought their share price from $0.78/share to $18.00/share with these sorts of misleading statements. The idea is only to pump the stock price, scox doesn't expect to exist long term.
