The story from The Register:

While it is fair and good SCO is going to court to battle over IP with IBM, one would think it is pretty ludicrous for SCO to slap a page asking people to buy IP licenses when they have not proven the code as thiers. While these issues will be resolved in a court of law, it is even more ludicrous for any individual or company to fall for a gimmick such as "buy a license today, because you never know if we will win" strategy.

I see it this way. When you are a sinking ship, you will do anything to save yourself, and SCO is betting the farm on this lawsuit in the hope to make themselves the other Microsoft. Which begs the question if the GPL license is under question, should the other licensing schemes be under scrutiny as well? I mean did Microsoft borrow ideas too?

SCO once again proves they suck balls.
