Just a suggestion...

If we can confirm this, legally anyone whom they demand this money from has a 
right to receive legal justification as to why they are liable for the 
charge. This is because they did not obtain the product with an explitcit 
license according to the terms that SCO suggest apply. So why not get anyone 
who uses Linux to email SCO - hopefully '000s - to demand the detailed legal 
basis for the claim?

Bumps up their costs, a bit of extra administrative pressure on their legal 
team, and perhaps helps to personalise the action between the Linux user 
community and SCO rather than just the current SCO sideswipe at IBM and the 
AIX system?
