SCO vs. Linux: Costly German lawyers

The never ending story surrounding SCO's litigation over alleged copyright infringements contained in Linux as well as the copyrights to Unix has taken yet another twist: The SCO Group, currently subject to proceedings under Chapter 11, is causing a stir as details in relation to their payment obligations emerge. In a filing published by the website Groklaw monitoring the litigation, the SCO Group asked the court for permission to finance judicial proceedings in Munich with up to 15,000 USD. Thereby the impression has been created the proceedings would be successful. The defendant takes a different view on this.
