VIKTOR SCHRECK: Your Honor, our file format, while proprietary, is the result of years of research and development. It is only natural that we would prefer to keep using it when the alternative is a format that simply isn’t as robust.
DEFENSE ATTORNEY: Your Honor, Massachusetts decided to adopt a standard that any potential customer could adopt and use without paying royalties, or violating any patents, or incurring any licensing fees whatsoever.
VIKTOR SCHRECK: The standard is inadequate to the needs of people who currently use office suites.
DEFENSE ATTORNEY: It covers everything that was considered relevant to the needs of the Commonwealth!
JUDGE: Enough. I believe I’ve heard all that I can stand to hear. I will consider your arguments carefully, and render my judgment tomorrow morning.
JUDGE: … so please go away.
VIKTOR SCHRECK: Oh.
DEFENSE ATTORNEY: Right.
