The analysts and press keep repeating that SCO has some chance of collecting usage royalties for Linux, which is simply not going to happen. Meanwhile, the stock price is elevated, and SCO is pay out to Canopy and others both directly and indirectly. By the time there is any blowback, the vermin will have absconded with all of the assets, and the shell of a corporation will be left to deal with the inevitable shareholder and other lawsuits. SCO will declare bankruptcy, and that will be the end of it. There is no downside for Canopy, Microsoft, and Sun, as long as they didn't commit it to paper.
