    “And what's strange, what would be marvelous, is not that God should really exist; the marvel is that such an idea, the idea of the necessity of God, could enter the head of such a savage, vicious beast as man.”
    - Fyodor Dostoevsky, The Brothers Karamazov

    Yes it is. We may have plausible deniability, but he apparently does not.

    This is sort of like when Calvin Klein stole that cologne idea from Cosmo Kramer.

    I'm sure that CNS' lawyers advised him that the idea was too generic to be protected. I wonder if they also had knowledge that LBJ's claim to it was also shady?

    This is likely to be distraction for him during the playoff.

    His little tirade may have goaded the originators of the idea on.That would be pretty galling, having someone who stole your idea complain publicly about having it stolen from him...

    In the Walter Isaacson book The Innovators he talks about Steve Jobs getting mad that Bill Gates stole the idea of Windows from him. Jobs stole it from someone else. I don't recall who it was now. Gates told Jobs something to the affect that Jobs getting mad at Gates was like a thief being in a house and getting mad because another thief came along and stole what the first thief wanted to get.

    I found the story:

    And the greatest robbery may have been the GUI – Graphical User Interface. But who stole? Later when he was challenged about pilfering Xerox’s ideas, Jobs quoted Picasso: “Good artists copy, great artists steal. And we have been always shameless about stealing great ideas. They were copier-heads who had no clue about what a computer could do.” [Page 365]

    However when Microsoft copied Apple for Windows, it was a different story… “In the early 1980s, before the introduction of the Macintosh, Microsoft had a good relationship with Apple. In fact on the day that IBM launched its PC in August 1981, Gates was visiting Jobs at Apple, which was a regular occurrence since Microsoft was making most of its revenue writing software for the Apple II. Gates was still the supplicant in the relationship. In 1981, Apple had $334 million in revenue, compared to Microsoft’s $15 million. […] Jobs had one major worry about Microsoft: he didn’t want it to copy the graphical user interface. […] His fear that Gates would steal the idea was somewhat ironic, since Jobs himself had filched the concept from Xerox.” [Pages 366-67]

    Things would go worse… “Well, Steve, I think there’s more than one way of looking at it. I think it’s more like we both had this rich neighbor named Xerox and I broke into his house to steal the TV set and I found out that you had already stolen it”. [Page 368]

    And then, Gates turned around and tried to trademark the word "Windows." Lost of course...
