They aren't commenting (this is an opinion, and I have NO inside 
information) because it's a legal matter. Jeeze, people, go on their

you force someone to give you something, it's no longer giving, it's
stealing. Persons of leisurely moral growth often confuse giving with
taking.    -- Larry Wall
