What I have seen so far :
- Law suits are messy. Being "right" in a scientific sense is totally irrelevant.
- Lawyers will bill lots of money.
- A "jury of your peers" is a joke. The esoteric crap this is being fought about is hard enough for most Ph.D. level folks to get their heads around. Expecting a jury to do that is a useless hope. You will get a "random" result. Role your dye with care...
- Damages are randomly determined. The rules for this are somewhat set...juries just don't seem to follow them.
- Thus you rely on appeal....
Overall : Fighting is good for you if you win. If you don't win, fighting isn't good, so it really comes down to what kind of gambler you are. If you don't win, and then go to appeal, you are going to spend a year, and the lawyer fee's that go with that, before you get another shot. Do you have a year? No matter what happens, it will be a distraction, it will cost a lot of money, and it will go on longer than you want.
