According to the old "MySQL Language Reference"
By default, string comparisons are not case sensitive and will use the
current character set (ISO-8859-1 Latin1 by default, which also works
excellently for English).
I suppose one may encounter a MySQL database where the system
default has been configured to be case sensitive
The other option might be to run a (hopefully) one-time update
update theTable set SKU = LOWER(SKU);
and then ensure that any user input is forced to lowercase before it
gets into the database.
