Ok, the main flaw I see in this is that you have to specify which
files on their site are infriging.  A quick look at ftp.sco.com
failed to find actual kernel source files.  The only thing I found
was something called "kernel-addon[...].src.rpm".  Does anyone
have a specific url for kernel source files?  I forwarded the message
to my local LUG list and at least one kernel contributor is asking how
one goes about submitting a DMCA takedown notice.

Cheers,
