Apple, Microsoft, Adobe Systems and Real Networks are the targets of a Santa Cruz, Calif., maker of copyright protection technologies that has sent letters demanding that the tech heavyweights cease and desist "actively avoiding" the use of its products. Media Rights Technologies and its digital radio subsidiary BlueBeat.com assert that the four companies have produced billions of copies of Vista OS, Adobe Flash Player, Real Player, Apple iTunes and iPod products "without regard for the [Digital Millennium Copyright Act] or the rights of American intellectual property owners."

Would you like some cheese with you whine?, Using similar tactics, they probably threatened to sue the publisher of this magazine if they didnt publish this boring story too. (meaning comsumers are getting tired of hearing about it)
Is it not unreasonable for just anyone to develop copy protection and say, "You must do business with us" ?
This kind of ideology will create a wave a startups suing anybody anytime they wish.
I believe the author of this article took the meaning (real intent) of the act out of context.
