Comment: Why Jobs and Ellison don't get in trouble (Score 5, Informative) 509

The distinction between Mr. Watson and Mssrs. Jobs, Ellison, Brin, et al, is that the salaries of the latter are set by independent boards of directors of public companies. Mr. Watson set his own salary, which the court found was not commensurate with the market rate for that sort of work.

Most any college team I know of (SEC ones in my experience) MAKE the universities money by the barrel full.

These teams not only support themselves, but pour money back into the general university system.

Check your stats a bit more carefully.

The University of Kentucky athletics department brings in about $60 million/year in revenue.

That funds their budget (and Calipari's grotesque salary). Roughly $1 million, IIRC, makes its way back into the general university system.

It's also the same with Firefox and their rejection of anything but Theora

More like vice versa. Theora is an extension of VP3, the only codec whose patent holder (On2) has licensed it worldwide for use in software meeting the definition of free software. All other codec owners have rejected Firefox.

Show me a man who is a good loser and I'll show you a man who is playing golf with his boss.
