Exactly. This is perhaps something that LUGs all over the world could
help with, or at least in the US. They could join together and begin a
class action suit against SCO, along with the FSF and other big corps
(because they could afford it). A minor donation from members would get
things off the ground. Of course it's a pretty complicated affair, but
certainly worth it's weight in publicity.
It would be an interesting thing to try anyway.
