SCO, the Holder of the IP Torch, Settles Copyright Infringement Complaint with No Starch Press
Wednesday, May 12 2004 @ 01:45 AM EDT

Linux Journal's Don Marti has the news, and it's funny. SCO apparently infringed an author's copyright, copying entire chapters of a book available online and putting them on their web site. Pirates have to pay, as you know:

Joe Cooper wrote the Book of Webmin, and it is available on a web site. However, it isn't under a Creative Commons or similar license, but SCO nevertheless allegedly copied large sections of his work and put them in SCO's online documentation.

No Starch Press is the publisher and a spokesman told Linux Journal:

"'We have no issues with SCO at this time', said No Starch founder Bill Pollock in a telephone interview Tuesday. However, Pollock said last fall that he would insist on a payment from SCO in order to resolve the copyright dispute."
