which they still have to prove. I for one, wasn't aware of either Jon
nor the "trade secret" status before they hit me with their laughable
injunction attempt.

plus - shouldn't the court be able to throw out a requested injunction
if the relief thought is entirely inefficient? such as getting a TRO in
a california court against 500+ people worldwide? no matter how large
the notions of grandieur, the court should realize that its ruling will
never be enforced in even a majority of the countries involved.
