I came across a screenshot I did in December of 2004 just now, and I thought you might like to see it, particularly because the link to the SCOsource licence for Linux announcement in a really early Groklaw article doesn't work any more.
Just what was it that SCO offered to sell people, anyway? Was it a license for Linux or was it not? At the time, that is what they called it, and that's what the media recorded, as you can see from this article by Robert McMillan back on September 3, 2003. Even better, Jonathan Corbet at LWN reminds me that LWN ran the complete text in August of 2003. Here you go.
Nowadays, as per the SCO Second Amended Complaint in SCO v. Novell, you'd be hard pressed to know it had much to do with Linux at all. But feast your eyes on this screenshot, my friends, for SCO's offering of:
The SCO Intellectual Property License for Linux.
And here's the date I snapped it, and the only change I made is I altered it to be a jpg, so I could make it narrower, and of course, I still have the original:
So, there we are. A SCO Intellectual Property License (whatever they mean by "intellectual property") for Linux. Not for Unix. For Linux. That's what the man said.
By the way, I think we know now what they meant by "IP" in that context. They probably meant methods and concepts, as opposed to actual code, doncha think? Anyway, that's what I think. A girl certainly has to work mighty hard to keep all the history straight.
