Initially SCO claimed ownership of Unix source code and anything else that had been touched by anyone who'd ever seen the code.

Reeling from a stock price that had risen to over nine dollars, SCO launched SCO vs Red Hat. Unfortunately SCO's case, claiming that SCO held the rights to all primary colors, did nothing to diminish the value of their stock, indeed the stock climbed as high as seventeen dollars by the end of 2004. The addition of legal action against Novell began to send the stock price south.

SCO

SCO stock certificates.

Stale Creative Organization, or SCO, was founded by Xenu to place Thetans on the souls of Linux users. This often causes Linux users to be chronically unemployed and suffer from a variety of mental illnesses and diseases. When Xenu developed a conscience Darl McBride took over.

SCO is funded by MicroSuck, in a desperate attempt to hide the superiority of Linux from the corporate world. SCO is rumored to be ruled by an evil demon, but details are sketchy, as it apparently eats visitors.

SCO claims that all Linux users owe it five billion dollars in licensing fees, or face sharks with frickin' laser beams, according to their spokesman.

Linux users generally cite goatse as a place to address any attempts to charge them.

SCO is known to be the Best Company in The World(tm). The company is a premier producer of start buttons and luxurious clothing, predominantly lawsuits.

They forgot to remove all of Bell's Logos and artwork.

SCO's Unix was derived from the original Unix from Bell Labs (Unix time wasting systems). SCO Unixwarez is the only UNIX compliant system that get pwnd by the warez scene. It break the World Record as the most priciest UNIX for nothing and it doesn't end there SCO will auto-steal your $$$ for about anything beyond basic OS functionality.

Nowadays SCO's Unix name is Unix Time Machine System. It's name is more appealing for people seeking an old fashioned Unix, just like in the old days. UnixWarez/OpenSewer is unique among enterprise Unix-based products in the stability it provides. Where other products are routinely updated with new features and security fixes, meaning downtime and possible retraining of staff, SCO left products untouched for years in between updates.

SCO also produced a Linux distribution before they went ballistic and started suing everyone's ass. Regarding the Linux lawsuit, they declared that they won't make any special exception for the users of SCO Linux,and that they will also sue them. They also said that they had already a large list of SCO Linux users, and that these users should expect to be sued.

If your code contains the word include, BEWARE! You might be sued because you have copied code from SCO!

edit SCO legal actions

SCO as a company protected its shareholders from wealth by launching a series of legal actions that would ultimately bring the stock so low that a majority holding would, if sold, just about cover the cost of dinner and a meal. The legal actions went through various phases.

Initially SCO claimed ownership of Unix source code and anything else that had been touched by anyone who'd ever seen the code. Beginning in 2003, with a stock price of $1.39, the commencement of SCO vs IBM lead to a modest increase in stock value, despite SCO's legal case hinging on the claim that IBM had violated Star Trek's "Prime Directive".
