I'm not sure I agree with that last sentence Mordy. Depending upon how
they handle it they may never see Cisco again, but there's a world of
difference between X-Force losing major clients and ISS worldwide going
down the pan, at least that's how I see it (not that I'd shed a tear for
ISS if they did go down the pan, but that's beside the point).
If ISS were doing a source code analysis, I do hope they have the right
to sue the bejesus out of the guy. I'd also suggest that Cisco point the
finger at ISS, rather than Lynn as he was under ISS's employ at the time
he wrote the talk, even though he wasn't when he gave it and ultimately
ISS is liable for his breach of NDA.
However, if this turns into a DMCA job or a wacky piracy/terrorist-type
criminal issue, it just gives me another reason not to return to the
U.S. and remain in my undersea lair with my home-grown PVR, open-source
systems and TOR-ified tin-foil-covered Internet connection ;)
