I would say that a fair and just response would be to kindly ask the
person/company in what way we could possibly violate their copyright. We use
no fragments of their product, and me knowingly they have no patent on the
ideas (for those areas of the world where software patents would be valid).

I think this is just an attempt to make us stop shipping Jewels, but without
much legal backup.
