Must be a bunch of kids trying to do something. But they are definetly not in right direction.
Some of our technologies and ideas are literally followed by some known security vendors as well. If you look at others, you will see sandboxing/autosandboxing, geekbuddy, trustconnect with other names or sometimes similar names. Well ideas are good. So why wouldnt they follow if they can?
However there are some companies who literally stole our IP and they know themselves very well...1 in US and 2 out of US.
