SCO Now Willfully Violating the GPL
Posted by CmdrTaco on Fri Oct 31, '03 10:20 AM
from the this-just-gets-more-interesting dept.
Pogue Mahone writes "According to The Register, SCO is now distributing Linux code under a more restrictive license than the GPL. This is a violation of copyright, since only the GPL gives them any rights to distribute the code. Time for every single developer who has contributed code to the kernel to send a Cease and Desist letter to SCO."
