Linux Code Absolutely Clean

filed under Linux

In the August 13, 2002 Michael Davidson email which was unsealed recently, it was revealed that an outside consultant, hired by SCO in 2002, failed to find copyright infringments in the Linux Kernel.

At the end, we had found absolutely *nothing*. ie no evidence of any copyright infringement whatsoever.


But in 2003, SCO still filed a $1 billion lawsuit against IBM for allegedly violating its intellectual property. They ignored the consultant's advice and are still trying to find evidence so they could make money selling "insurance" for Linux. More details over at Groklaw.
