Re: Microsoft violated the license they had signed with Sun

That's why in my hypothetical example, they'd have had to call it something different. I was trying to establish a long term understanding in the software realm that copyright can apply to APIs, because Microsoft *didn't* do what Google did 10+ years later.

But look, since this is just muddying the waters, forget MS.
