Hi, this was a great read. Except SCO's suit does not involve patents (yet). They are focusing on contract violations. Specifically, their "Exhibit A" and "Exhibit B", a Sequent contract, and I've heard Monterrey mentioned. To be honest, I know of no one that has pulled their suit from public records and actually tried to figure what they are claiming. There are probably many contracts between SCO and IBM, and I'm sure there's a way to prove infringement both ways.
You are correct in your conclusions - the courts are not necessarily rational in their decisions. Look at OJ.
