    IB is claiming Xenforo is too similar to vBulletin 4.
    Considering how horrible vBulletin 4 is ... I think that is grounds to sue for defamation of character.
    Silly IB, xenforo is a pleasure and your horrid software is annoying. These products are NOT similar at all.

    The thread title read like a statement of intent so I have edited the word "to" to "should".

    I think XF should sue IB for inflamation of customer base ... oh, hang on ... perhaps not!! ... :ROFLMAO:

    I would even change 'should' to 'could'. I'm not convinced it would be wise. Let IB play their dirty little game, and show their customers who is the most mature. :)

    Defamation of Character suits are rarely won, and are very Hard to win. 75% fail rate in California.

    If you want to waste money, buy a vBulletin 4 license.

    And, they don't actually need to countersue. If they win in U.K. they get their money back, and if XF wins in Cali, the judge can order for vBSI to make payments to xenforo. Basically, Pamela has to do a GREAT job in order for their lawsuit to backfire on iB/vBSI.

    The judge can be harsh if they wish. In fact, they can slap iB's hand and order them to pay MORE than what xenforo is paying for lawsuits. Don't make any expectations, but most of the lawsuits work out this way. For example, LG sued Sony over blu-ray infringement, and the judge ordered LG to pay millions of dollars in damages - guess who? Sony.

    There are many better claims they could make rather than defamation. However, it is up to the fine folks at XF whether it makes sense to sue. Whatever happens, I see good things ahead for Mike, Ashley and the Barefoot One.

    Our lawyer in California is Michael Grace and Pam Deitchle is an associate at his firm.

    Do you watch "The Good Wife?" It doesn't matter. They work together; she doesn't have to be at court to do it. She did a great job with the 7+8 claims, I expect more of this team-up. ;)

    I wouldn't mind meeting Pam. She's was superb in writing, I wonder how she argues orally.

    Please tell us that you aren't in CA hoping to meet Pam? ;) If so, that is both dedication and an oral fixation.

    Make your way to 444 S. Flower Street, Suite 1650, LA 90071 and make your introductions if you want to. You'll see Michael Grace there too, obviously. Though please don't put it on our tab!

    She's off to a pretty good start, I'd say.
