Hopefully this will help send a message to others in the industry who might be thinking of dropping real products and living off of IP fees and lawsuits that its not all peaches and cream!

I don't even know what they have to reorganize here, I'm pretty sure any *real* customers they had are long gone at this point. Might as well sell off the office furniture and shut the doors for good.
