Alright, enough is enough, stop talking about this retarded subject! For crying out loud, this is stuipid, and NOTHING WILL HAPPEN!!!
Someone once told me Microsoft had to remove IE from windows because of all those suits. It never happened.
Someone once told me search engines were going to go to a “you pay, you come up in a search.” Big companies were supposedly paying for this. So, if you searched for “ducks” on google, only those who paid would get a higher search engine placement. It never happened.
Someone once told me that a patent infringement case against Microsoft would remove plugins from working in web browsers the same, thus affecting the web in negative ways. From removing existing browsers from the market cause they cannot afford the patent infringement cost to negatively affecting the industry because web pages would be reduced to older technologies to get around the infringement. It will never happen.
Shut up and move people… there are a lot cooler things to discuss, like Flash 7, for example. It, for example, is a reality that will instatantiate change into things.
I know I can’t prevent it from coming up again in a few years when all the appeals get publicized, but I hope by then you’ll at least take them with a grain of salt seeing that NOTHING HAPPENED!
