SCO to Sue Individual Linux Users
On Wednesday, August 25, the SCO Group Inc. announced plans to sue individual Linux users who decline to pay it a $700 license fee. "Suing consumers in order to speed-up resolution of SCO's lawsuit against IBM is completely unjustifiable," said EFF Staff Attorney Jason Schultz. "SCO should prove its legal claims against IBM and Red Hat before it turns consumers into collateral damage. SCO should not wield the threat of litigation to extract licensing fees from consumers when it's not at all clear that it has any legal right to do so."
