> I believe he's wrong. Section 7 of the GPL is very explicit in this regard:
I'm not so sure... AFAIU it says that if _somebody else_ was to impose obligations on me that interfere with distributing freely, I can't distribute at all. In this case it is SCO themselves that impose the conditions, so it would look like they can distribute. Note that then the same GPL prohibits people who got Linux from SCO to distribute further.
IANAL, just a bewildered bystander in a country about to enter a free trade agreement (with IP rights and the works) with the USA.
