This would seem to conflict with a statement the Blake Stowell made to Mozillaquest Magazine at the first of the year.
MozillaQuest Magazine: Regarding binfmt_coff, abi-util, lcall7, abi-svr4, abi-sco; are any of these modules SCO IP?
Blake Stowell: No, none of the code in the Linux ABI modules contains SCO IP. This code is under the GPL and it re-implements publicly documented interfaces. We do not have an issue with the Linux ABI modules. The IP that we are licensing is all in the shared libraries - these libraries are needed by many OpenServer applications *in addition* to the Linux ABI.
So, apart from some header files that have been around since before 1994, and the reference to ABI that one of their employees denied, what do they have? Why should I get a license from them?
