News   News : SCO vs Everyone, Red Hat vs SCO, SCO vs Red Hat, Everyone vs SCO
   posted by Bodie on 6-Aug-2003 16:08:35 (1396 reads)
The lawyers have been kept busy the last few days. Following the continuing blather eminating from SCO (NB. whatever merits their original case may have had have largely been overwhelmed by the claims that they own everything, Linux would be nothing without 'stolen code' etc), Red Hat have decided to make a stand and have filed a complaint.

The purpose of this complaint is to demonstrate that Red Hat's technologies do not infringe any intellectual property of SCO and to hold SCO accountable for its unfair and deceptive actions.

"We filed this complaint to stop SCO from making unsubstantiated and untrue public statements attacking Red Hat Linux and the integrity of the Open Source software development process," said Mark Webbink, General Counsel at Red Hat. "Red Hat is confident that its current and future customers will continue to realize the significant value that our Red Hat Linux platform provides without interruption."

The company has also set up a legal fund to help other Linux developers fight any legal actions that arise out of the current SCO situation.

SCO responded by holding a press conference, intimating that Red Hat may be countersued, and outlining the idea of charging a huge licence fee for using Linux. No doubt Microsoft will be their first customers."

This thing with SCO is just nuts. I still believe that what Nick Veitch wrote in Linux Format stands true. i.e. That SCO at the end of the day wnats to be bought over by one of the companies it is suing (ie. IBM).

But I still wonder what Novell is doing about the situation, because they said that they hold the rights to the Unix code, not SCO.

Don´t laugh brother...

Apparently, if SCO have it their way, then many it is alleged, that many Linux users may be inadvertently affected.
