Well, it's official. Those whacky lawyers at the SCO Group have filed suit against AutoZone for alleged copyright violations via the company's use of Linux. We'll see how AutoZone responds, faced with a potential extortion fee (did I say that outloud?) of nearly 700 per server. But in the meantime, here's a verbal riff from SCO's team of litigants, I'm sure you'll enjoy:

AutoZone violated SCO's UNIX copyrights by running versions of the Linux operating system that contain code, structure, sequence and/or organization from SCO's proprietary UNIX System V code in violation of SCO's copyrights.

I wonder which "organization" they're talking about here, perhaps Kernighan & Ritchie, GNU, Berkeley or Allman?
