-- "With SCO's announcement of upping the ante in its lawsuit against IBM (now seeking up to $50 billion in damages), the world is in agreement that SCO owns the world of comedy. As such, SCO is rightfully claiming that all jokes, humor, and laugher is derived from their lawsuit with IBM and belongs to SCO's IP. Furthermore, SCO has sent out letters to over 1,500 well know comics, comedians, and talk show hosts indicating that they may be infringing on SCO'c IP and may be subject to damage claims by SCO. As all humor belongs to SCO, SCO has also sent a letter to R. Dangerfield demanding that he stop being funny or he may face legal action." -- unknown
