    Happy for you XF guys. Hope you rub every accusation of theirs right back in their greedy corporate faces.

    What I say doesn't hold a thing, but I really would suggest keeping this positive with no disparaging remarks.
    I may just buy another license in support.

    Honestly, did IB learn nothing? Why do they even bother, unless they've seen the source code, then they don't really have a case. Besides, IB did more damage to themselves then IB can ever do to XF

    Likewise, I completely support XF in this baseless legal action by IB. Even to the degree of PMing Kier & Mike and seeing if I could pay through PP as a gift and in £ to minimise costs!

    I also bought a license, although in all likelihood we won't be migrating for some time yet.

    I really hope IB face a huge backlash over their blatant attempt to disrupt XF's development & attempt to financially cripple XF.

    If I had the money I'd offer to fund their defence, assuming they need it. If I win the lottery, I'll hold fast to that promise.

    Yeah, not likely I know, but that's how I feel. I hate seeing companies throwing their weight around like this when there simply is no case to answer. The problem is that they know the defendant has to defend themselves and that costs money!

    In the meantime I suggest that anyone who is likely to move over to XF at some point buys a license NOW.

    They learnt one lesson, but not the most important lesson - SEE HERE. ;)

    Anyway, I wasn’t going to buy a xF licence for a while yet as I am not ready to make the move from vB4, mainly because I need a calendar being a ‘What’s On’ site, but the latest news about the additional action in the US courts has changed my mind.

    I am now the proud owner of a xF licence.
