Ed Black, president and CEO of OSAIA, dismissed SCO's claims about national security, pointing out that all US software developers, including Linux vendors, are bound by the same export controls that restrict licensing of SCO's products.
The OSAIA, which is affiliated with the Computer and Communications Industry Association and promotes the adoption of open standards and open source software, has vowed to compete with SCO for the attention of US political leaders.
"OSAIA will actively engage Congress to explain the full benefits of open source software to the economy, how the GPL relies upon and is consistent with US copyright law, and refute SCO's baseless claims of IP theft," it said.
