Why are you carrying on this discussion here for-bloody-ever? There are
no lawyers here or noone even halfways qualified to have this
discussion, and you are certainly not one either.
I do not see why you are so hell bent on complaining on behalf of
Microsoft and Apple. If they have a problem they should have resource
enough to object for themselves. Furthermore I highly doubt there is
reason to fear a sudden $1 billion lawsuit from Microsoft for copyright
infringement. Even MS knows that all they need to do to rectify alleged
wrongdoings is to send a simple email to Daniel Robbins and matters will
be handled promptly. It is not black magic or chinese math to anyone
(except maybe people who like to argue for the sake of arguing).
