According to all the lawyers who have commented on the subject
(except SCO's), there is no apparent justification for the
"invoices".  This is why it's likely that people will want to
report the "invoices" to law enforcement if/when they arrive,
like any attempted fraud.

I'm trying to get more information on this, and will post it when I
have it.  It's likely that people will decide to do a group event --
say, taking large numbers of "invoices" to a law enforcement agency
together and asking them to begin an investigation.

In the meantime, if you get an "invoice" from SCO, save it.
