SCO Group Sheds Light on Code Theft Case

Well, SCO finally showed some of the infringing code to the public according to some info from Slashdot. Amazingly enough there is a quie concise summation of the origin of the code in the comments of the article:

So to sum it up: SCO sued IBM, because HP comitted a patch copied by SGI from an old Bell Labs Unix, which was released under a BSD license by SCO. Seems like Sun are the only ones not involved. That's probably the reason they bought one of those Unix licenses from SCO, just to be part of the picture. [Slashdot Comment]

All of our reasons for why they didn't want to show the code are now true: the theft claims are all bunk!
