"derivative works of the Software" != "the Software"

well... unless you work for SCO. ;-)


"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."
