Legal And we have another contender for the stupidest technology-related lawsuit of 2011. Do you remember RealNetworks? The scourge of '90s web users? Lucky for us, their horrible media player is no longer a requirement on the web. Also lucky, for those of us who occasionally run into content encoded in any of Real's codecs, there's Real Alternative (download here). Well, apparently, RealNetworks is not happy with Real Alternative (download here), as the US company has completely destroyed the life of the Dutch maintainer of a website who dared to link to Real Alternative (download here).

OK, so that makes... nine... ten... eleven... times two hundred and ten thousand... *cling* You owe us €2310000, punk, and another €2190000 for slander and besmirching our good name.

Now seriously Thom, what are you going to do if RealSuckers' lawyers knock on your door tomorrow?
