    Red Hat Stands Pat In SCO/Unix Controversy

    As SCO Group cranks up the pressure on the Linux community for allegedly misappropriating some of its Unix code, Red Hat Inc. continues to stand by the position that it's done nothing wrong.

    In a letter posted on SCO's site, Red Hat chairman and CEO Matthew Szulik indirectly addressed SCO Group's allegations. "Red Hat's software-development community takes valid intellectual property rights seriously," Szulik wrote on May 19. "We respect and take effort to maintain the legal and technical integrity of valid intellectual property, including patents, copyright, and trademark."

    Other than that, according to a Red Hat spokeswoman, it's business as usual at Red Hat. "We still do not have a whole lot to say. All of SCO's allegations have been made indirectly," she says. "We feel satisfied that we're doing what we should be doing."

    Part of the reason for Red Hat's reticence, she says, has been that SCO Group hasn't publicly released evidence of the intellectual property violations it asserts have taken place.

    Absolutely. Unless something has changed in the last week while I wasn't paying attention, SCO has yet to produce a single line of code that they claim has been misappropriated. The only way to see the mystery code is to sign a non-disclosure agreement to see the Unix source code, in which case you can expect to be sued the next time you release a piece of Linux code because you've now seen the golden Unix code.

    What a retarded mess.
    Do what you want with the girl, but leave me alone!
