If the anti-trust laws ( and I admit I'm not up to speed on them ) are in fact violating patent/copyright law...that...is a problem...and it needs to be addressed.
current antitrust laws allow for patent and copyright protection to be destroyed - all you need to do is complain about the 75% market share a software product has, and bam! you have your antitrust case... and that's not a problem?
Nothing...absolutely nothing...should supercede the patent/copyright regulations...they are the foundation of our creative protection.
