Linux Kernel Code May Have Been in SCO UnixWare

William Tanksley Re:Bad moves now haunting SCO (455 comments)

Well, court rewards and copyright start with financial damages, and commercial Unix has those from Linux. So SCO probably just figured that they had a decent reward coming, and the payout in the other direction would be pretty much limited to a stern "thanks for removing the offending code, and don't do that again."

Of course, that did pretty much hinge on them having some evidence... So much for that.
