And on a preliminary reading  of the suit against Daimler Chrysler, it
seems  that  SCO is  saying,  `you purchased  a  license  to run  UNIX
sometime in past, from some  entity not in existince now; that license
still binds you for ever and  all your actions and choices of software
shall be bound by that license ...' and things to that effect.

Interestingly, the  license on which  SCO is basing its  claim against
Daimler-Chrysler  is  a  *source  code*  license, not  a  binary  only

`Open Source' any body???
