Give me a break. His track record in court as awful. Bluffing is the 

"I believe that the legitimate problems of the free software community 
 and the equally serious problems of the parties who are concerned about 
 the regulatory consequences of their product designs are being studied 
 in the appropriate way by all parties. "

How nice. And the GPL section 4 simply doesn't apply because "problems 
are being studied", I guess.

"It is well known that the Free Software Foundation does not hold 
 copyright in the Linux system kernel program. "


"The Foundation notes that despite the alarmist statements SCO's 
 employees have made, the Foundation has not been sued, nor has SCO, 
 despite our requests, identified any work whose copyright the 
 Foundation holds-including all of IBM's modifications to the kernel 
 for use with IBM's S/390 mainframe computers, assigned to the 
 Foundation by IBM--that SCO asserts infringes its rights in any way."
