Linux insurance goes on sale

Open Source Risk Management plans on Monday to begin selling Linux users protection against copyright infringement claims such as those levied by the
SCO Group.

The New York-based company is launching the insurance-like offering after a six-month study that compared Linux with several versions of Unix. The
evaluation uncovered no copyright problems with versions 2.4 or 2.6 of Linux's heart, or kernel, a finding that contradicts SCO's legal attack on IBM,
AutoZone and DaimlerChrysler.
