Destruction of evidence - SCO ordered it.
July 21, 2006
In its "OBJECTIONS TO ORDER GRANTING IN PART IBM'S MOTION TO LIMIT SCO'S
CLAIMS", SCO writes:
"Weeks after SCO filed its lawsuit, IBM directed "dozens" of its Linux
developers within its LTC and at least ten of its Linux developers outside the
LOC to delete the AIX and/or Dynix source code from their computers."
Why, on earth, is SCO complaining? In his June 12, 2003 letter to Sam Palmisano
[353-A-C], Darl McBride demanded that:
"Pursuant to paragraph 6.03 of the License Agreement, IBM shall discontinue use
of and return or destroy all copies of the Software Products as defined in the
Related Agreements, which includes derivative works and methods."
By the plain, unambiguous terms of this letter, the Linux developers did exactly
what Darl McBride told them to do.
