In the remote possibility that
GPL v2 gets "killed", the most likely outcome is that the "agreement" parts of GPL v2 would be deemed void. This still leaves us with the copyrights of each author who contributed to the Linux kernel: the bits of source code are still the property of their respective owners. With that still in place, SCO will not be able to claim the linux kernel as its own and will not be able to distribute it. Moreover, each copyright owner can always contribute his/her code to Linux-Phoenix, released under
GPL v3 or some other SCO-proofed license agreement (possibly involving real paper and signatures).
