Am I the last one to get this? It seems the same as when someone says
that you have stolen their car you find out it is only part of the car.
So, you ask them which part. Turns out it is the spare tire and you
didn't steal it, someone else did and put it on the car before you
bought it.

So, being the nice person you are, you return their spare tire and get a
replacement of your own. So, if SCO tells me I stole their code, I think
I will return the stolen part--if they tell me what it is.
