Again, point taken. I live and learn.

But if I copy from the intro, am I not opening myself for being sued over IP or something like that :-)

Just copy from the intro (:

``The full story of what one person who signed SCO's NDA encountered on
his trip to Lindon, Utah.

 This essay describes my visit to SCO on June 17, 2003, to discuss SCO's
claim that Linux infringes on its intellectual property rights. I
visited the SCO office in Lindon, Utah, for about one hour. I spoke with
Chris Sontag, Senior Vice President, Operating Systems Division, and
with Blake Stowell, Director of Public Relations. In order to speak with
them, I signed a non-disclosure agreement. 

The short version of this essay is SCO's claims are unproven, as I
expected would be the case before I went. The amount of information SCO
was willing to show me was extremely limited, and it did not by itself
prove that SCO's claims were true nor that its claims were false. ''
