Red Hat Files Suit Against SCO
from the put-up-or-shut-up dept
Sick and tired of all the ridiculous moves from SCO, Red Hat has decided to do something and has filed a lawsuit against SCO asking the judge for a declaratory judgment that Red Hat has not violated any SCO intellectual property. They're also setting up a fund to help back anyone who is challenged by lawyers from SCO over intellectual property found in Linux. This is, generally speaking, a good move. Part of the problem with this whole mess is that it's dragging out much longer than necessary, and Red Hat is simply trying to push it along by forcing SCO to finally put up or shut up.
