Obtaining a Personal Unix Source Code License from SCO

Here's how to get a personal Unix source license from SCO which covers 1st to 7th Edition UNIX and 32V:


Download the SCO Special Software License from this web server. Alternatively ftp it from ftp://minnie.cs.adfa.edu.au/pub/PDP-11/sco_license.txt , or obtain it from SCO's web server at http://www.sco.com/offers



Print the source license out. Don't think about modifying the license because it is verified when it gets to SCO, and all you are doing is throwing away the cost of postage.


Fill in your full name, address and any e-mail address, as shown in the example below.



For AUTHORIZED COUNTRY, I suggest writing:


All countries not excluded by Section 5.2


Draw a cheque (from a U.S bank), or an international money order, for US$100. It must be payable to: The Santa Cruz Operation, Inc. An alternative is to quote your credit card number, described below.


Write a cover note giving your name and contact details (address, fax, email), indicating that you wish to purchase the enclosed SCO Special Software License.


You can pay by VISA, Mastercard, or American Express credit card if you choose. Quote your credit card details in the cover note, if you are paying by this method, and authorise SCO to withdraw US$100 from your card.


Sign the license agreement. Sign the cover note. Send the agreement, cover note and any bank cheque or money order to:
The Santa Cruz Operation, Inc.
P.O. Box 7745
San Francisco, CA 94120-7745
United States of America


Wait for a response. SCO will try to respond within 2 to 3 weeks. If you have any questions about the license or its status, contact:
The Santa Cruz Operation, Inc.
400 Encinal Street
Santa Cruz, CA 95061-1900
United States of America
