My first response to this was, "Yeah, mofos, not that hard!"

But then I realised, if someone asked SCO as a representative of a company
that relies on Linux - and it would only be useful to either party if that
were true - then SCO's answer would cause the company to be fully aware of
a potential law suit, essentially putting it on notice.

That's bad.

Whether SCO is right or not, or whether a suit is legal or not, would not be
of great concern to owners/shareholders of said company. :-)
