SCO sticks by legal threat over code

Ross Bentley
SCO president and chief executive Darl McBride has reiterated his determination to pursue legal action against IBM and Linux users over SCO's controversial claim on Unix code.

In a letter to Computer Weekly McBride repeated his accusation that IBM had stolen SCO's intellectual property and had failed to comply with the terms of the SCO Unix licence. He made it clear that SCO does not intend to look the other way.

"Pursuing this case is not optional," he said. "SCO has a clear licence and we must defend it and our business when that licence is violated."
