while i do agree that the SEC would have a problem with this, actually presenting WHY they might have a problem would be beneficial.
currently snps dominates the timing world and the synthesis world. they hold a significant portion of the verification world and with cdn's verification tools, they would dominate that. they also have a significant portion of the digital circuit layout and routing world and again with cdn's (rather pathetic) tools would basically dominate that world as well.
basically leaves only mentor that dominates the pcb world, but essentially nothing else.
magma is dead, rajeev is an over inflated, ego maniacal liar and will end of destroying the company with his big mouth.
so that would leave snps ruling the eda world as essentially a monopoly. somehow, even with the idiot bush in office, i don't think the SEC would go for it.
