Subject: Boycott SCO/Canopy email campaign

Boycott SCO/Canopy email campaign.

I've already done most of the work for you. Please take few minutes to send an email to these canopy group portfolio companies.

I am also including a list of canopy group web-sites, and a sample of the letter
that I have sent to all of these companies.

I want to make it clear that I am not just sending emails. I actually intend to
do all that I can to boycott these companies, and to have others boycott these companies.

I want as many companies as possible to understand that any affiliation with canopy group could cause those companies to lose sales - during a time when so many technology companies are already suffering from slow sales.

Maybe this won't make a world of difference. But, if enough people will just send an
email, maybe this will put a little pressure on the canopy group crime syndicate.

Note: the email didn't work, so I deleted it from this list.
You may need to go to their web-site.

Subject: Boycotting all companies affiliated with SCO/Canopy

I have worked in IT for 25 years, and have been involved in several major purchasing decisions.

I am infuriated at SCO/Canopy's attempts at fraud and extortion. As well as SCO's FUD campaign against Linux.

As such, I will no longer purchase, or recommend the purchase, of any products or services from any company that is even partially owned by SCO/Canopy. I intend to encourage my colleges to do the same.
