On a side note, this doesn't really affect me... cause I use windows... cause I'm too lazy to use linux and too lazy to get it working with all my hardware and stuff lol.
SCO was the Santa Cruz Operation, a company that created (among other things) a PC-compatible Unix variant called UnixWare. In 2001 they sold their OS/Unix division to a company called Caldera. Caldera execs decided that they liked the SCO name and started using it, rebranding as "SCO Group".
Why would replacing the infringing code not be an acceptable solution? Surely it addresses all the issues, and would save SCO a packet in legal fees. Perhaps they are worried about what people may discover about the "infringements".SCO has not detailed its infringement claims, but the company has shown a portion of its infringed Unix code to people willing to sign non-disclosure agreements. Haff claims if SCO did detail all the allegedly infringed code, developers could write new code to replace it, defusing the situation.
