Parent article: SCO may audit IBM's AIX customers (vnunet)
yes they can walk along to IBM customers and say we would like to audit you...
1/ they cant get in the door unless the site administrator gives them access ( this is
reasonable courts say so you cant just turn up and demand access secondly if the site says
so they must turn up with all the documenation to say I have not been a comunist... XYZ and
keep them going in circles for years....)
2/ its hugly expensive to send out letters asking for access to read the documentation that
they have corectly licenced code
3/ they can see documentation its not like they can play with your systems ! just like if you
sign up to BSA or other org
4/ this is a threat to IBM
there has got to be a damages suit looming from IBM, when that happen's goodbye SCO !
(I wonder what IBM will ask for in damages ?)
