The threat of higher indemnity fees in the future may be the only way to shift more SCOSource licences today, because further lawsuits have been put on ice.
SCO has hinted that it may soon raise the cost of its intellectual property (IP) licences, which it says companies running Linux need to buy in order to avoid being sued.

Many in the open-source community have been angered by SCO's ongoing claim that its proprietary Unix code has been illegally included within Linux. The company is currently involved in legal action against IBM, Novell and Autozone. Darl McBride, SCO's chief executive, revealed last week that his company weren't planning to bring any more lawsuits anytime soon.
