Might as well send the same complaint to:
Maybe we should compose a letter here? Something like:
Dear Sir / Madam
As the representative of a small business (XXXXXX) I am writing to file a complaint regarding the actions of the SCO Group.
SCO is making unspecific and unsubstantiated claims that it owns copyright pertaining to the Linux PC operating system. It is asking any companies using Linux to purchase licences or face the threat of legal action.
Would you please investigate the claims that SCO is making so that small businesses and other companies are not pressured into making unwarranted payments.

Subject: My complaint to the SEC
if enough people complain, maybe somebody will notice. It only takes a minute. Here is the web-site, and a sample letter.
I am writing to file a complaint regarding the actions of the SCO Group, and it’s controlling company: Canopy Group.
SCO is making unspecific and unsubstantiated claims that it owns copyright pertaining to the Linux operating system. SCO has indicated that the only way for a company to use Linux legally is to buy SCO’s own UnixWare product. If Linux users were, in fact, legally required to purchase UnixWare, this would substantially boost SCO’s revenue.
However, SCO has no legal basis to force companies to buy their products; and SCO knows it. I know this because I have specifically informed SCO that I am using Linux, and that I will not buy UnixWare. Predictably, SCO is not taking any legal action against me.
It is glaringly obvious that SCO’s statements are in fact designed to inflate SCO’s share price by misleading investors. SCO’s share price has sky-rocketed recently because of SCO’s deceptive campaign.
