SCO lost its meaningless copyright suit with Novell yesterday.

Here is my old 29 Dec 2007 post to this group about SCO:

SCO, was a really stupid company that initially released software under
the GPL. Remember SCO Linux? After discovering the folly of the GPL
business model they tried mindless litigation.

This demonstrates the wisdom of incorporating Apache or BSD style
licensing in commercial software. You don't have to contend with
mindless GPL morons, who wish to abolish the enforcement of intellectual
property rights, ,
by filing lawsuits claiming enforcement of intellectual property rights.

Any company that thinks that the long term capitalization of GPL
software is possible deserves to eventually go bankrupt in litigation.
Good riddance to SCO. They deserved it.

The IBM Corporation, the world's first computer monopolist, whose
revenue stream from the enforcement of software patents is second to
none is playing the GPL folks for fools. The Microsoft Corporation, the
world's second computer monopolist, desperately needs GPL Linux software
to hold about 25% of the market to avoid DOJ antitrust scrutiny.

Do GPL folks really think that long term they're going to win?

There is good evidence that commercial companies are planning future
projects that incorporate real "open source" software under BSD and
Apache style license due to the SFLC's intimidation tactics.
