The tall claim made by SCO has not worked after all. The total earning from SCO source claim has been $32K and the Legal Bill a whooping $3 million.
SCO has claimed that Linux uses SCO patent code and technology and hence anybody using Linux must pay SCO license fee. Under this license program, SCO has been offering a license to companies that use Linux, saying that it will protect them from action by its legal department. The cost of legal bill came from from SCO's ongoing court cases against IBM and Novell, for using its IPR unlawfully in Linux.
