It could very well be that IBM would have asked with or without SCO making a fool of itself. Remember: IBM is huge and have been in business longer than pretty much any other "high tech" company.

Checking on the copyright status of Free Software projects before they write significant code based on it seems a reasonable thing for them to do, even if SCO wasn't making noise.
