Sorry to reply to my own post, but I had also meant to point out that Stowell's statement does not agree with section 4 of the GPL:
4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program except as expressly provided under this License. Any attempt otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License. However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such parties remain in full compliance.
IANAL, but SCO's violation of the GPL appears to be nothing less than the misappropriation of the copyrights of the hundreds of individuals and companies that have contributed to Linux. They appear to be the ones who don't respect intellectual property.
