LOL. Peace out, Hyman.

On page 38 of <>, lawyers
for IBM assert
    Based on the misconduct described herein, SCO's rights to
    distribute the copyrighted works of others included in Linux
    under the GPL have been terminated pursuant to ยง4 of the GPL.

So, I have a choice. I can believe lawyers who work for one of
the largest companies in the world and have vast experience in
dealing with patent and copyright law, that the termination
clause is meaningful enough to be stated as a claim. Or I can
believe a crank on Usenet. I believe I'll go with the former.
