SCO Business 'Plan' Is a Flop

The premise of the lawsuits is SCO's claim to be the rightful owner of
Unix, small parts of which might have made their way into open source
Linux code. SCO asserts that any company selling or using Linux is
violating SCO's intellectual property rights. In reality, many of
these declarations are in dispute.

It's been a long time since I read Dale Carnegie's book How to Win
Friends and Influence People, but I'm pretty sure there wasn't a
chapter called "Win new business by suing everyone." Perhaps we should
buy a few cases of the book and spread them around the executive
offices at The SCO Group, the company that has gone Linux
lawsuit-happy as of late.
