IconSCO is now turning (again) the tables regarding their Linux policy: SCO suspends sales of its Linux distro, alerts customers that Linux is an unauthorized derivative of UNIX and that legal liability may extend to commercial users. SCO reaffirms commitment to SCOx, SCO's growth strategy through Web services. Additionally, eCommerceTimes feature an editorial: 'SCO: Put Up or Shut Up'. Update: Read on for two more updates on the subject.

UPDATE 1: An Anonymous reader tipped us that the German SCO site reveals infringement: "After a google search, this PDF (text version) showed up. It mentions a Red Hat HOWTO here."

UPDATE 2: SCO doesn't know why suspension of their Linux distro took so long to come in effect. They have 3 different teams examining the Linux kernel for stolen code.
