I think you have misread this article. Nowhere does it support any implication that the name they gave the activity meant anything to the court. Change every instance of "Death Star" to "Cute Puppies" and the article reads the same. The state of mind of the suspects is important, but they aren't using the name "Death Star" to do that. You're simply wrong, and it's time to concede. Your "silly" metaphors about crimes have nothing to do with the one I presented in the original post because I never suggested that anyone engage in any illegal activity.

    I can't prove my claims with perl code! So I don't think this is a good forum for debate of legal issues, and I'm truly sorry that I brought it up in the first place.

    There are some very nice links at encyclopedia.thefreedictionary.com on marketing warfare, which is the concept that I was thinking about in my original post. They include many of the ideas that have been discussed in your outline and some of the responses. The site also has information about legal concepts in tort law, good faith, etc. They also mention why the marketing warfare books are now on the discount rack.

    I also confess to having been ignorant of your involvement with the military and I apologize if my remarks were inappropriate. I am a big fan of your writing and wish you continued success with it.

    It should work perfectly the first time! - toma
