Parent article: Copyright Lawsuit Is Turnabout for SCO (New York Times)
That is an excellent point and these errors should be sent to Markoff. HOWEVER, I am still thrilled with this article overall. The general tone is that Canopy are a bunch of hypocrites and they even mention the stock kiting allegations. They note how "SCO has provided little, if any, public evidence that its copyright has been violated." and they include a good quote by Bruce Perens.
3 months ago most of the financial press articles were complete FUD, uncritically parroting SCO press releases. While there are a few serious mistakes, this article demonstrates how the tone has changed and it puts SCO on the defensive. Instead of making more ridiculous accusations, they left SCO/Canopy people saying things like "SCO picked a big fight and it flowed over to the Linux environment and we found ourselves in an awkward position" and "I know I've been painted in a rough light. I hope that our companies are our legacy and not our lawsuits."
The tide is turning. Yay!
