Not that it has anything to do with this lawsuit (the pad looks like an obvious rip off), you should look into the facts before you start commenting. It is usually the 'comment' left in that is the basis for the checksum to make sure it is a 'real' product. Most of the time you have to leave the comment intact or the device won't work. Like the word SEGA in megadrive carts, etc or the psx comment to get a psx external boot rom to start, Nintendo gameboys wouldn't boot a cart that didn't say the word 'Nintendo' in the correct place in the rom! In fact there should be no comments in the code as these are left out by the compiler, comments that you see have to be left there on purpose, other than for this purpose as a cheeky comment exchange between developers and hackers.
The big companies put these things in (for protection purposes) so they can stop you selling a third party product under trademark laws and bog you down in legal red tape because Judges usually have a limited understanding of how things work - they just see the trademark word. This practice should be made illegal as it stops fair competition and innovation - something that is usually good for the general public,. but not that good for the big companies.
