Did your employer received threatening letters about those possible litigations ?
Yes, every day. It was a big company.
If they came in to the end user of the product, we sent them to Legal. 99.95% of the time a counter-bark letter from Legal solved the problem. 0.05% of the time there was a legitimate dispute over the claim.
I don't know what the actual percentage of times we had to pay anyone was, but I would guess something like 0.001% of all letters received. That's why I find some of SCO's comments mildly amusing - semi-non-threatening letters arrive by the metric ton at corporations all over the US every week. Companies know how to handle them.
