Microsoft tried for a deal with Stac and couldn't come to terms, so they bought 
similar technology from DoubleStack and VertiSoft which was eventually found to 
be infringing on the Stac patents.

Still can't piss straight, as the cited-to articles show, MS cloned STACKER .. twice .. and only then bought a license from VertiSoft ...

That may be getting fucked, but I am sure that Stac enjoyed it.

No, only the folks at MS who invented a term for it BOGU ..
