LAS VEGAS — The SCO Group, which owns the UNIX operating system, has filed suit against AutoZone, alleging violations of SCO’s UNIX copyrights through its use of Linux.
SCO’s lawsuit alleges that AutoZone violated SCO’s UNIX copyrights by running versions of the Linux operating system that contain code, structure, sequence and/or organization from SCO’s proprietary UNIX System V code in violation of SCO’s copyrights.
The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in Nevada, requests injunctive relief against AutoZone’s further use or copying of any part of SCO’s copyrighted materials. The suit also requests damages as a result of AutoZone’s infringement in an amount to be proven at trial, the company said in a statement released yesterday.
