Information on "SCO Ancient Unix" web page appears to be factually incorrect.

Indeed. The wording on the web site is:
Use of all versions is strictly for educational use only, and is restricted by the license agreed upon by entering this site.
If the code was already released under the BSD-style license, the above
statement is inaccurate and misleading. The BSD license-covered code is most certainly not limited to educational use only. Either SCO doen't realize this, or they're trying to close the stable door after the horse has bolted!
However, unless the code in question was also released under some other BSD-license which does not include the Caldera advertising clause, any advertising materials mentioning features or use of the code must acklowledge Caldera to be in compliance with the license.
