Eenie, Meany -- More Details on Picking the Victim
Tuesday, March 02 2004 @ 03:08 PM EST

Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols got an exclusive interview with Darl McBride, with more details on who the poor object of his affections might be.

Joke.

They are debating which of two victims to sue. It doesn't appear to be Google. There will be more, but there can't be endless suits, a la RIAA, I'd guess, because they only have 1500 on the entire list to begin with. Here are some highlights from the scoop on eWeek.

"McBride indicated that lead SCO attorney David Boies [who represented the Department of Justice in its antitrust case against Microsoft] of the law firm of Boies, Schiller & Flexner LLP would make the final call.

"McBride continued, 'Neither company is in the technology business.' This appears to rule out Google, which had frequently been mentioned as a possible SCO target. However, he said that 'both are major firms that are names anyone would recognize.'

"'They are also,' he added, 'businesses that were on our list of approximately 1,500 companies that we sent warnings to about their use of Linux in 2003. We've been in talks for several months with and both of them said "no deal."'

"Although SCO will only bring action against one company tomorrow, the other company on the short list will be sued in time, McBride said."
