Internet Explorer "Elements of Microsoft's next-generation Web browsing software have been posted on a Windows-related blog site, including screen shots of what the application may look like and a link to some of its code. While the links to the build code for what appears to be a beta version of Internet Explorer 7 have since been yanked off the JCXP.net Windows forum, the site is still showing off roughly 14 screen shots of the browser. The person who originally posted the links and photos to the site has since removed the ability for users to click through to the code sample, reportedly at Microsoft's request. However, JCXP.net indicated that before removing the code it was downloaded as many as 12000 times."

Copying the UI, look and feel, etc, in the name of "innovation".

Copying what from IE? From the looks of IE on the screenshots, there is nothing that FOSS can copy. Most of the features that is on IE is already present on other browsers, be it FOSS or not.
