As you all may know Fyodor of nmap fame has terminated SCO's
rights to distribute namp with its products. See:
I know this is off-topic, but I am interested in opinions
on the subject of SCO using Samba in it's products while they declare
the GPL is unconstitutional and invalid. In Darl McBride's recent speech at
Harvard Law School, he was asked in the Q&A period about SCO's use of
Samba and the GPL - to which he replied something to the effect (I am
paraphrasing here) of "Samba doesn't infringe on our IP to our knowledge, so we
still contribute (??) to the Samba project and distribute Samba with our
products" Is this hypocrisy? I welcome opinions of the members of the list.
Sorry if this is not the right forum for this, but I am interested in the
opinions of the Samba community on this issue.
