On the other hand, Timeline's case is YEARS old and they are going
after treble damages from companies who just took Microsoft's word
that there was nothing to worry about. Some people should be VERY
nervous, indeed.

Thats the part that worries me greatly. This general idea may apply
to a lot of other cases. The way I read the news story, you can not
rely on your vendor to provide you with legally licensed software.
Do you have to check for each software (firmware?) component you 
buy? How do you ever find out which licensed components are included?
