But consider,...
Lotus sued Adam Osborne's Paperback Software out of existence,
because his Visi-Clone smelled like their Visi-Clone.
If Adam were to have been just a little faster plunking down
about $10K for the residual debris of the IP of VisiCalc,
then he could have REVERSED that suit.

Likewise, Novell was not interested in the assets of DRI,
other than the Copyright ownershio of CP/M, and hence immunity
from IP persecution from MICROS~1.
