Does this affect NetBSD in any way:

SCO Group, a struggling company that has claimed its Unix
intellectual property has been illegally incorporated into
Linux, sent a letter to about 1,500 of the world's largest
corporations warning they could be liable for using Linux.
The move, announced Wednesday, dramatically widens the
Lindon, Utah-based company's legal actions beyond its
initial target, IBM, a SCO Unix licensee that SCO sued in
March for more than $1 billion on allegations that include
inappropriately using Unix trade secrets to improve Linux.
