I think this can add weight to the ACCC deliberations on SCO.

"In Germany, we have achieved our purpose," LinuxTag spokesperson Andreas 
Gebhard told NewsFactor. "They (SCO) are no longer allowed to say they 
have the intellectual property rights on the Linux kernel."


Lawyers from LinuxTag sent a letter to SCO on May 23rd saying that SCO 
must "desist from unfair competitive practices." The group sent the letter 
in response to an SCO missive, sent to 1,500 companies, that warned of 
potential consequences from using Linux.


"SCO needs to stop claiming that the standard Linux kernel violates its 
copyrights, or they need to lay the evidence for their claim on the 
table," he added.
