It's a long hard slog before a court will assume that, though:

I would guess that a prerequisite would be for a court to
actually decide that the claims were frivolous, which is
difficult when the cases are settled before they get to
trial. I will anxiously await a courageous code grabber
who is willing to go all the way, and then we'll see.
