SCO Denies Rumors that Google is its Next Legal Target
Despite online reports, SCO on Wednesday denied that Google will be its next target for legal action due to its Linux use.The SCO Group Inc. earlier this month announced that it would file at least one lawsuit against a large corporate Linux user within the next 90 days as part of its effort to expand its legal war with Linux and its business supporters. This week, according to a LinuxWorld report, Lindon, Utah-based SCO picked its target: Google, the worlds largest search engine company. The report, based on a single anonymous source, sparked considerable discussion among Linux and open-source supporters.
However, SCO spokesman Blake Stowell on Wednesday denied that Google has been singled out for SCOs legal action.
