SCO to argue General Public Licence invalid: They’re apparently going to try and invalidate the entire concept of open-source.
“The GPL licence allows software and work derived from it to be copied by anyone at no charge. But according to today’s WSJ, quoting lawyer Mark Heise, the GPL is pre-empted by US federal copyright law. How does that work then? According to Heise, federal law only lets people make a single backup copy of software, and that makes the GPL void under US law.”
