    Suing over loss of market share (that’s the idea, even if they say it is for… stealing of ideas, but not quite copyright infringement?) is like suing Apple because people pay more for iTunes than Napster, and yet still go there.

    What are they saying? “You are smarter than us and are selling more, so we will sue you”?
