McBride letter continues SCO's Linux attack

McBride's argument has its "fundamental facts wrong," said Linux creator Linus Torvalds.

"I'm a big believer in copyrights," Torvalds wrote in an e-mail interview. "Of all the intellectual property (laws), copyright ... is the only one
that is expressly designed so that individual people can (and do) get them without having scads of lawyers on their side."

"If Darl McBride was in charge, he'd probably make marriage unconstitutional too, since clearly it de-emphasizes the commercial nature of normal human
interaction, and probably is a major impediment to the commercial growth of prostitution," he wrote.
