John,
This is what happens when companies do not aggressively track copyright infringements! The same fate befell Xerox and Kleenex! Once the product enters the public domain, there's no getting it back! A variation of the same argument is used to defend against proprietary information/security violations. The courts have held that if people can get ahold of proprietary info, it's not--because if it were, the corporation would have taken adequate means to prevent the stealth/secure the info! There's some anecdotal evidence to suggest that the same criteria may have applied to govt cases, from the Los Alamos Labs non-prosecution.

The whole subject holds some fascination for me.
