SCO Approached Google About Linux License

SCO Group Inc., the software company that is suing IBM and extracting royalties from other Linux
users, said on Friday that it had held "low-level talks" with Internet search engine Google about a license agreement.

"Certainly if they're using 10,000 Linux servers that include our intellectual property as part of Unix, we would want them to
license," said Blake Stowell, a SCO spokesman.

Linux, which can be copied and modified freely, has been a hit among businesses since it can be run on personal computer hardware and is based on the
widely-used Unix platform.
