"Now, to a layperson (like me for example), it might well make sense to say that "but you can't know that they would that"

Get some random company* to sue these neutrino people over their statement. Get the neutrino people to get some lawyers to defend themselves.
See what shit lawyers come up with to argue over stuff they don't even remotely understand.
*Dunno, a company that sells things with back lit LCDs. They could claim that since they used light before anybody else, other people can't do things with it too. And breaking the speed of light = YOU BROKE IT, YOU BOUGHT IT!
Don't think any company would be so vile though. Oh, wait...
