Judge gives SCO 30 days to disclose facts on Linux code

The SCO Group has been told by a US judge to identify  "all source code and other material in Linux ... to which plaintiff SCO has rights" within 30 days.

Brooke C Wells, the magistrate on the case between SCO and IBM, said that SCO also must describe exactly how it believes IBM infringed these rights.

IBM spokesperson Trink Guarino said, "We are very pleased the court has indicated it will compel SCO to finally back up its claims instead of relying on marketplace fear, uncertainty and doubt."
