SCO Coughs Up the Code

SCO Coughs Up the Code

The "amendment" is basically that SCO has now eliminated its breach-of-trade-secrets claim but leaves on the table the existing breach-of-contract plus adds a new copyright infringement claim - concerning IBM's allegedly having continued to distribute AIX after SCO "terminated" its licence.

The "Second Amended Complaint" includes the lines of code SCO alleges were improperly included in Linux - a list of unix filenames with line numbers, and filenames and line numbers from the Linux 2.2 and 2.4 kernels.

Now the Linux community will be able to respond, and in detail. 

Groklaw's PDF of the filing is currently available here, or in plaintext here.

Happy reading!

More to the point SCO is an unwanted product leech. Folks want them to put up or shut up. I am for the latter.
