    SCO Claims Linux Lifted ELF
    Posted by michael on Tuesday July 20, @05:12PM
    from the making-it-up-as-we-go-along dept.
    fymidos writes "SCO has finally spoken. According to this linuxworld article, they claim that linux illegally uses the ELF binary format, the JFS filesystem, the init code and some more 'copyrighted Unix header and interfaces'. Finally SCO makes its move. The JFS part was expected of course, but according to the article, as far as the ELF format is concerned 'the Tool Interface Standard Committee (TISC) came up with a ELF 1.2 standard' and 'granted users a "non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free license" to the stuff'. Oh, and of course 'both Novell and the old SCO - as well as Microsoft, IBM and Intel - were on the committee'."

    I have one question. I have been reading and listening for a while so here it goes. If I were a big company and used Linux, should I be worried about having to pay SCO?

    I don't think I should myself. From what I have read, they are dead in the water. But would you be worried if you were in the situation above? Personally, I would like to tell them to "go stuff it", not saying where though.

    What you think?

    Re: When's payday?

    Are they getting some of their own medicine you think? Or did I read that wrong?

    Wonder if M$ will fund the defense?

    SCO bussiness model

    http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmp...video_patent_4

    ...The message: pay up, or risk getting sued.
    ...
    Several colleges say the letters make even broader claims, extending beyond distance learning to cover almost anything a college does that involves moving audio and video files on computer networks.
    ...
    Now, critics of the company are saying that it's trying to make a fast buck off schools nervous about litigation before a federal judge makes a final, potentially crippling ruling in that case.


    SCO, you should be proud, you have opened a whole new bussiness model. Buy some rights, send extortion letters to users, make the deadline to pay up before the courts validate your rights/claims, and threaten to sue everyone.

    After reading this article:

    I was curious to see exactly what the SCO defacing looked like. So I decided to go google and I got the goods. God that's alot of goo! I just thought you guys might like to see these too.

    I saw it live on the SCO website; when my heise newsletter arrived they still hadn't taken it down from their homepage.

    Wonder if SCO has read that? Wonder if they thought they would help us instead of hurting us Linux users.

    Hey SCO, Looooooooser!!!

    Love that.
