No.  I would expect MS to identify the files involved, or the
subsystems involved, or whatever.  Enough for the defendants to know
what they've allegedly violated.  Which particular versions of those
files would be immaterial.

Are you suggesting that the companies that have entered into licensing
agreements with Microsoft for use of its patents are doing so out of
fear and are ignorant of the specifics?

No, not at all.  The discussion was purely about copyright, not patents.

That is a rather silly position for you  to take. [....]

You're knocking down the strawman you've created.

I invoked the patent analogy and it is certainly *no* straw man argument. It is preposterous to think that any plaintiff could file infringement claims over nonspecific, non-identified intellectual property whether coprights, patents or trademarks. I realize you socialists don't want to acknowledge the concept of specific intellectual property but that's just life.

Sincerely,
RJack :)
