How about the legalitites of including an unlicensed MP3 codec?
Or the legal issues with the copyrighted material which is reproduced
without express written concent.
Or the use of trademarked names for plugins.

As I said before, The big-3 (ala have claimed that their
choice on anonimity is based in legal issues.
Their continued breach of the above (very prosecutable) legal issues
proves that we are being deliberately misled.
So THE question is ...what is the truth?
Perhaps, just perhaps, if the truth came out, people might react differently.

>They just don't feel for debating this, because it never leads anywhere.

Or is it because they have something to hide?
There is strong evidence of either being true.

covered to death now).
