SCO Group recently announced that it will no longer seek legal action against companies running Linux. In lieu of this announcement, companies" interest in protecting themselves from SCOs lawyers has waned.
In a move to counter such complacency, SCO is currently "evaluating" raising its licensing fee. Blake Stowell, SCOs Public Relations Director, claims that "companies that license now may be able to do so cheaper than if they do so later", alluding that lawsuits could potentially happen again in the future.
Interest in SCOs SCOscource license program has been steadily tailing off which could suggest that many companies believe SCO will lose its various court battles. If this happens, SCOs claim that Linux contains its intellectual property would dissolve and the need for licensing would be no more.
