SCO staff join Linux protests

My other placard's funny

SCO employees in Provo, Utah have made clear their distaste for the company's war on Linux.

Staff greeted protesters from the Provo Linux User Group with signs such as "Give communism a try - free Linux", "My son stole code - and published it" and, best of all, "Stealing Software Is Not A Crime" below which is written, "In Iraq and parts of France".

The latter is a reference to Iraq's liberal copyright laws, which are full of social provisions, but which are now being revised with the help of the Recording Industry Association of America's Hilary Rosen. SCO identified its holy war with that of the music 'industry' last month. And we can only guess how Rosen can improve these provisions.

If only the Revolutionary Leadership Council, which passed the laws in 1971, could have helped liberate the United States from Hollywood. ®
