FWIW, Bruce Perens claims that SCO later released "ancient Unix"
(possibly up to v7) was released under a Berkeley license; his writeup
of the whole episode, including snapshots of SCO's actual slides, is

He's got a link to the license itself, so I'm a *bit* more sure of my
assertions this time... though corrections are welcome as always.
