SCO Linux FUD returns from the dead

I have literally been covering SCO’s legal attempts to prove that IBM illegally copied Unix’s source code into Linux for over 17 years. I’ve written well over 500 stories on this lawsuit and its variants. I really thought it was dead, done, and buried. I was wrong. Xinuos, which bought SCO’s Unix products and intellectual property (IP) in 2011, like a bad zombie movie, is now suing IBM and Red Hat “illegally Copying Xinuos’ software code for its server operating systems.” For those of you who haven’t been around for this epic IP lawsuit, you can get the full story with “27 eight-by-ten color glossy photographs and circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back of each one” from Groklaw.
