Yes, but it can also be used for 'historical' use which a book about a 30 year old system should be under.

But regardless firms like this push their weight even if they know they might not win in court, because the opposition is going to retract the book based on the scare factor, even if it goes to court and Bitmap Books win, it will cost them highly in court fee's, maybe they should have a kickstarter just to pay for the court case to take on the corporate bullies!
