SCO's 'Las Vegas code': All show?

Code shown during a speech in Las Vegas by SCO chief executive Darl McBride to demonstrate how SCO intellectual property has found its way in Linux is nothing but fist-pounding, according to the latest attack on SCO's tactics. Moreover, SCO's legal argument is attacked for containing an inherent contradiction.

The latest debunking of SCO's claims comes from Eben Moglen, professor of law at Columbia University Law School. Moglen, who is also general counsel of the Free Software Foundation, which developed the GNU General Public Licence under which Linux and much other open-source software is made available, accuses SCO of being a "shyster".
