It's well known that DoD contractors sell info to each other that's classified. When you work on a classified project, not only do your competitors know that your working on it, they have detailed technical specs of the systems you are providing to the client.
Interesting article: People are paying up to $40 for a doughnut in Manhattan because only 250 are made per day. It's not just because they taste good, it's a status symbol too (like shopping at Whole Foods).
Whole Foods should market limited-edition foods to Yuppies who have way more money than common sense. This would greatly increase the margins in their already successful prepared foods sector.
I've seen lots of these infringement trials, and a good case can be made for misconduct in each one. Both sides endeavor to lead the jury, and the side that fails accuses the other side of misleading the jury. I hope VHC gets a new trial, but I predict the likelihood of that is 20%. VHC simply got out-lawyered, which is why trials are #$%$ shoots no matter how good your case is.
