I apologize if this has been addressed before;
recently
I read an article in Forbes which discussed how SCO
was going after companies that have been using Linux.
The article made the point that the ideas behind GPL
are under attack precisely because no one is making
sure
that the code being put into the freely avail.
packages
isn't owned by someone else.

Here's my question: Is R vulnerable in any way to the
sorts of lawsuits that SCO is bringing against the
Linux community?

Thanks in advance,

    Greg
