    It just seems a bit odd how it is NOT acceptable to the source of Mr
    Greenes information to publish the actual information (nor the sources
    and methods, which is not unusual), but it IS acceptable for Greene to
    publish a detailed summary of the information.  The logic is
    incredibly flawed here because Greene welcomes a lawsuit by @Stake,
    whereby if Greene refuses to share the information with a court of
    law, then he accepts defeat in the lawsuit, and if he does share the
    information then he compromises his asset.  The Register is a UK
    company, @Stake is a US company, and I don't know the laws of Int'l
    business but it would seem to me that this would be how it would break
    down, no?
