Disclaimer: I am not a lawyer. This is from my reading of the FAQs
available on http://www.copyright.gov

"Registering copyright" is only a *claim* to copyright. It is not
a judgement by the copyright office on the validity of that claim.
SCO filed a copyright registration so they can claim statutory
damages *if* it is later found that their copyright has been violated.

So for $30 USD, *anyone* can claim the SysV copyright.

We could talk about SCO and how we'd like to kick their arses for this
latest press release:


Maybe I don't know what I'm talking about. OK, I don't know what I'm
talking about. But I *am* very peeved right now after reading the above
press release. Which makes this email tenuously on-topic ;)
